UK mobile phone operator O2 has made a few changes to its iPad data plans, and it customers are now worse off. When the iPad was launched earlier in the year O2 were offering customers 3GB of data a month for £15 or 500MB of data a day for £2.00.
O2 has now changed both plans, O2 customers will now get 2GB of data a month for the same monthly fee of £15 that they were paying for 3GB, and 200MB a day for the same £2 daily fee that customers were paying for 500MB.
O2 actually made this change back in June, but did not notify any of their customers who had already signed up to the previous deals, here is what they had to say about it.
“When we announced new data pricing in June we aligned all tariffs to make them clear and transparent for all our customers. Since then, previous allowances have been shown as a promotion on our website. The vast majority of iPad customers are using under 2 GB per month and will not be affected by this change. Those who are can purchase more data if they wish.”
This is not the first time O2 has upset users of Apple devices on their network, as there have been occurences in the past over iPhone upgrades were O2 customers have been less than happy.
