T-Mobile impose 3GB cap on Android G1 in the UK
Now here’s an interesting bit of news for all prospective UK Android buyers; apparently T-Mobile will be placing a 3GB cap on monthly data downloads with the G1 mobile phone when it launches in the UK come November.
At the New York launch, T-Mobile said there would be a 1GB cap in the US, and then is reduced to 50Kbits/sec, that’s roughly in line with the old time dial-up modem speeds.
T-Mob then lifted what they named the ‘1GB soft limit’ form their fair use policy, and didn’t say anything about it being replaced.
A London based T-Mobile spokesperson said about the 3GB limit: “If you exceed that you won’t be charged initially but if you continue the heavy usage you may get a charge from a T-Mobile representative suggesting that you upgrade your account.”
