  • Apoligies if Ihave missed the glaringly obvious,

    I have just taken out a rolling month sim only with unlimited internet with orange, what are the limits for this contract?
    Not that i expect to use much, its just may now use spotify or radio apps which will obviously up the usage.

    Many thanks

    Which deal is that? I can only see "EE" contracts under Orange and none are unlimited internet...
  • it was a retention deal.

    its an orange contract, just no 4g.

    Most likely 3GB fair use if it's an Orange retention deal.

    It's worth ringing them up just to confirm this.
  • Sooo.... does anyone know would happen if one were to accidentally exceed the fair usage for text messages? Say on Orange.

    I have a question about how much data I need.....


    My daily commute to work is 6 hours, 20 days a month. For the majority of this time I stream premium quality internet radio through my phone (Digitally Imported) - so approx 120 hours of premium radio per month.


    How much data would I need for this? Would 10GB be enough or do I need unlimited?


    I have a 24 month unlimited data plan contract with 3 which is coming to an end. It works fine for the commute, but I have no reception at home or work, so i would like to leave and go elsewhere.

    Radio uses between 128 to 320 kilobytes a second so minimum about 60MB an hour means about 7.2GB so you would probably get away with 10GB.
    That said it wouldn't be enough if it was the top end of 320kb per second
    It's not just about the money

    Just coming back on this to say that there appears to be no repercussions.
