T-Mobile in the UK has revealed a new fair use policy, cutting caps from 1GB and 3GB to 500MB

Found this interesting story at Slashdot. Hope it's not a precursor of things to come here, but as one commenter said, if they don't want people doing all that stuff they should stop advertising it.  T-Mobile forgets that the customers can become former customers and switch to other carriers that really "play fair". 

T-Mobile Slashes Fair Use Policy, Says Download At Home - Slashdot


"T-Mobile in the UK has revealed a new fair use policy, cutting caps from 1GB and 3GB to 500MB, saying mobile browsing doesn`t include videos or large downloads. `If you want to download, stream and watch video clips, save that stuff for your home broadband,` the company said. All those people who have bought smartphones with the aim of doing such things on the go may not agree with the mobile operator, however. Any user that goes over the new limit won`t be charged, but will be blocked from downloading or streaming for the rest of the month."
