Orange ‘Anytime’ browsing capped to 30MB a month
Orange has placed an incredibly stingy 30MB download cap on its so-called Monthly Anytime Browsing package.
The mobile phone operator was widely congratulated when it announced the new unmetered tariffs last month, which allowed customers to surf ‘without worrying about the cost’ for up to £8 per month.
However, Orange has now confessed the cap on downloads is limited to just 30MB – which is hardly the data Shangri-La customers may have been expecting.
Orange this morning promised to issue a statement to PC Pro to justify such a restrictive data cap, but it has so far failed to materialise.
The data cap would certainly curtail customers’ chance of using bandwidth intensive services such as VoIP, although such services were previously barred under Orange’s terms and conditions anyway.
