Vodafone angers customers with data cut
Vodafone has angered pre-pay subscribers by cutting data usage limits without reducing prices.
Mobile broadband customers in the UK will be charged £15 (€17.74) per month for a 2GB service from February 1, compared to the 3GB limit currently in place.
The carrier stated the change reflects the usage of the majority of its pre-pay wireless broadband users - 90% of which typically don’t go above 2GB - in a newsletter released over the weekend, ISPreview.com reported.
However, customers are angry the firm hasn’t also cut the price of the broadband package, or introduced a second tariff for those who use less than 3GB, claiming the move amounts to a price increase as a result.
