I know it's only within minutes , but surely this should of been posted before the other thread which mentioned the 6GB's ""always on data""

@w69d you've linked to the Knowledge Base article that offers more information on the changes. Due to the fact that this article is linked to from within Ash's OP, it needed to be put up before this thread.

Most Unlimited members don’t use anything like 6GB so the only differences will be that they can now enjoy 4G at no extra cost and can use their first 6GB for tethering


what about the members using 10gb's to 12gb's so are they now getting a worse deal being data speed throttled from 6GB's upwards ?? (at 256kbps )

but glad the ""unlimited data"" words are removed

Minor typo in the "4G goodybags" image, though I'm sure most people will realise what was meant:

 

The new £15 (4G) goodybag has a crossed-out data amount of "3 MB UK data" as the amount of data available at present, when it should be "3 GB UK data".

Also, I don't understand why the concept of "Always On" data has been called "Always On". The phrase doesn't seem to bear much resemblance or meaning to the actual product. (EDIT: ->) It's too late now, but I'd have liked to have seen a better name for this - "Always On" is just confusing to me.

I suppose it means "not unlimited but never chopped off for overuse"?

That looks like an interesting range of goodybags with reasonable price-band steps.

 

However, those wanting lots of included calls and little or no data are going to be disappointed - so expect a lot of complaints about that.

 

Also, the opportunity of reviewing the gigabags have been missed.

There should at least be a £10 offer of say 2GB, which looks do able looking at the new price range.

Glad to see the survey wasn't done in vain. For a while I thought nothing would be done.

Pleased to see the changes and thanks for the update

Now let's work on the speeds

Good point - but at least the existing gigabags are going to be 4g enabled at last Smiley Happy
