Jon Morris thinks this is the end of unlimited as well.
Given the slow speeds Three are getting on 4G in London (less than 1mbps) compared to EE and Vodafone, then maybe unlimited / AYCE is time up.
Based on the chat I had with a Manager in Three store, when I was picking up a PAYG sim,
Three's looking to sort of out price heavy users by pushing costs for AYCE up and then getting people who stay on capped plans to lower usage.
One of three's issues at the moment is the Tethering... and even though PAYG sims aren't supposed to allow tethering my iPhone still has the option, even after receiving carrier settings update.
I know people that have got there whole homes running off of PAYG 3 sims, I curse them but then when xDSL at 1.2mbps is alternative you can't exactly say much.
Three's network performance has been [censored] for age's, and in central area's I find that 3's 4G starts restricting devices from connecting and pushing them down to a barely responsive 3G signal....
Personally I've given Three 2 months to prove themselves but been nothing but a nightmare to be honest, and starting to get pricey.
So just taken an £8 sim only offer from VM, 4GB,2500mins,Txts... going to put myself on a data diet.... anyway will be good practice for my move to Canada where a 1GB with Province Minutes and 100 country wide mins will set you back about $50 (ps. you pay to receive calls too )
