I just wanted to share a good article by Josh Smith of Notebooks.com. Josh sounds about as fed up with US carriers and their “unlimited” data plans as I am.
Every major US carrier advertises unlimited data plans, but I don’t believe any of them are actually unlimited, in the sense that, you know, the word actually means. Pretty much all are capped at 5GB or lower, but they still advertise saying that they are “unlimited”. Josh has compiled a simple list of steps to ensure that this sort of insanity doesn’t continue. It’s all pretty much common sense, but it seems that it these simple guidelines are beyond what makes sense to US carriers.
We’ve got lots of EU readers here at Carrypad: have you had similarly ridiculous contortions of the definitions of such words, or are EU carriers less evil than their US counterparts? Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments.
