Indeed so, and, IMO, Vodafone are the worst.
This term 'unlimited' is just a complete scam. The government let the
mobile companies get away with far too much. It is not so bad if, when
the limit is reached, the connection slows but that is not the case.
The UK Government didn't help the consumer over the roaming in Europe
scam either according to EU Commissioner Viviane Redding.
I still think that the amount agreed is a complete rip off. How much
does it cost to transfer a call to France for example - well virtually
nothing - how can it.?To make a landline call is cheap so how is
transferring a mobile call any different? Do I hear 'terminiation
fees!' ? Well that wants sorting too!
