T-Mobile rethinks data cut plans

T-Mobile changes data cut plans

T-Mobile is forced to back down from plans to cut the data allowance on its 'unlimited internet' mobile phone tariffs. 

Following a backlash from consumers, T-Mobile has announced that the plans will only apply to new and upgrading customers from Tuesday 1 February. There will now not be any changes to the data allowance for existing customers, for the duration of their contract. 

Earlier this week, T-Mobile announced changes to the fair usage policy on its 'unlimited internet' deals. It said that it would be reducing its fair usage policy from 1GB, or 3GB for T-Mobile customers who bought an Android smartphone, to 500MB. The changes were planned to apply to both new and existing customers accessing the internet on their mobile phones.
