I just wish that all operators would offer a simple package and forget
about this pretend 'unlimited'. Tell people what they are allowed to use
and let them use it any way they wish. Why all this stupid small print?
It is obvious that if limited to to phone then you'll use less data than
with tethering - so let people choose an amount they want, that is
realistic, and let them use it however they want. It should be no
business of the operator how you use data that YOU HAVE PAID FOR!! How
would it be if an electricity supply company offered cheap electricity
but then told you that it could only be used with only low energy light
bulbs, and nothing else, and that you are limited one light bulb per room?
It is all about headline figures. Look at us - we offer UNLIMITED use -
no tethering. Look at us - we let you tether with x amount of data but
you can't use it for p2p - knowing full well that few people will stand
any chance of using what is on offer.
Let's have a clear list of data amounts and prices with absolutely NO
restrictions and/or small print in regard to its use.
