SPOTLIGHT: Helio's new hybrid plan includes restrictions

When it comes to Helio's new hybrid data plan that combines EV-DO and Boingo's WiFi service on one data card for $85 per month, the MVNO isn't too innovative about the terms of service. Users only get 160 MB of downloads per month on the 3G network--a page taken from Verizon Wireless, one of its host networks. Helio is quick to explain that the restriction doesn't apply to the WiFi portion, but the writer correctly asserts that forcing people to hunt down hotspots when they're paying $85 a month and slapping arbitrary, erratically enforced limits on to their network usage isn't the right way to get people on your new network.
