O2 network scraps unlimited data for smartphones

UK phone network O2 has scrapped unlimited data downloads for smartphone customers.

All new and upgrading customers will have their usage capped at between 500 Megabytes (MB) and one gigabyte (GB) depending on their monthly tariff.

Analysts said the move was "inevitable" as more and more consumers switch to data-intensive smartphones that can surf the web and show video.

Other networks are likely to follow O2, they said.

"O2 had become the industry poster-child of the capacity crunch era," said Thomas Wehmeier, principal analyst at Informa Telecoms and Media.

Many customers have complained about poor service, download speeds and network coverage.

First it was ISPs now it's the phone companies.  :gum:

All that hard earned spent by people on the latest technology just to be told you can use it ... just don't use it too much

If this is so then then these company's should be at the least fined for false advertising in the first place as unlimited should mean unlimited.... not unlimited until you sign a contract then we will move the goal posts in our favour.... funny how they don't mention the many customers who don't use much bandwidth thus balancing out the overall consumption :no:
