Unlimited Mobile Data Plans – A Thing Of The Past

According to O2 today, from June 2010, a new Mobile Data Tariff will come into effect limiting users to a fixed amount of data for a set price and that the current ‘unlimited’ data plan is history.

The idea behind this change is that 97% of it’s users use less than 500mb of data per month and that heavy users of data will have to pay to consume more than 500mb per month. This is driven by the demand for data doubling every 4 months predominantly caused by the increase in the number of Smartphones that are being used.
