Now O2 go unlimited too!

The O2 Press Team have been in touch (which is new, so we must be doing something right) and have let us know that they’ll be joining the unlimited crew too. We’ve seen Three delivering unlimited data for no extra cost, which was then followed by Vodafone, who …

EE responds with unlimited 5G too

When EE launched their 5G plans we noticed that the example 5G plans were £10 more expensive than the same 4G ones. After a bit of digging, there were bigger disparities, so we had to question – why? It’s something that Three couldn’t understand either, and they announced …

The big Vodafone announcement. Limits are history, baby!

With all these 5G launches happening, it’s easy for things to get lost in the fog somewhat. However, what Vodafone announced recently is really rather interesting. Instead of offering yet more packages with present limits, they’ve instead announced packages which let you grab as much data as you …

SIM-only network, SMARTY, goes unlimited.

SMARTY is actually owned by the same people who own Three (Hutchison 3G) and you get the Three UK network coverage and data speeds on a SIM-only plan. We’ve covered them before and tested out their international roaming too. Now, though, they’ve got something new. A fixed-price, 30 …

Unlimited Everything for £20 a month – on Three

FreedomPop 15GB deal for £10 per month

This is a network which is slightly different to others. They user the Three masts here in the UK, but calls and texts are actually routed over your data connection. This doesn’t impact the amount of data you’re allocated, but it does mean that you’ll need a decent …

Truly unlimited everything with Virgin Media

It looks like Virgin Media are keen to get noticed. The caveat to this particular offer, though, is that you’re already a Virgin Media broadband or TV customer. If you are, listen up. First, the facts. Virgin Media use the EE masts, so coverage is very good indeed. …

Three cut off any remaining unlimited tethering customers

You’ve probably read about this one already, but it’s a sign that even Three – that once great data leader – has had to trim back on a few data-hogs. It’s a problem all networks have had – a few customers just tearing through data and causing a …

Wait a minute. Someone just said “unlimited data”. Hello TalkTalk.

It’s always a dangerous phrase. Say “unlimited data” to potential customers and, love it or hate it, a number of them will really push that to the limit. That’s what MVNO TalkTalk are doing, in a giffgaff-esque 30-day SIM offering which offers unlimited everything for £12 per month. …

Three say “neigh” to data limits

Three have gone a bit pony with their new ad campaign. The new commercial features a moonwalking Shetland Pony (yes, you read that right) and you’ll be able to share version of the ad through an online remix tool – ponymixer.com. It’s to promote the fact that people …

Stats show no need for unlimited data on EE?

When EE launched there was a lot of stick in their direction as the company decided not to offer unlimited data on their new 4G network, especially when T-Mobile and Three offer it on certain plans. However we are now 4 months on and CEO of EE, Olaf …

Tethering removed from Full Monty plans

The T-Mobile “Full Monty” plans were introduced after Three scooped up many data-hungry customers with their “One Plan”. The initial press release from T-Mobile clearly stated that… Customers signing up to the Full Monty 24 month plan … can use their mobile internet for whatever they like – …

Internet use on Three doubles in one year

We love our stats here at CoolSmartPhone, and one big milestone has just been reached by UK network Three. In this last year average internet use by customers has more than doubled from 450MB per month last year to a whopping 1.1GB per month this year. Customers with new …

The Full Monty – T-Mobile Statement

If you’ve followed our continued coverage of the T-Mobile supposed “cap” you’ll hopefully know the story by now. Basically, several customers were told that there was a 1Mb/s cap, then we were told that there wasn’t, but people continued to see their Full Monty speeds top out at …
