O2 UK Scrapping Unlimited Data Plans By iPhone Launch Day

Is O2 UK following in AT&T’s footsteps? The UK carrier has announced its move to ditch unlimited data plans for smartphone users from June 24th onwards, which is also the same day that the iPhone 4 will be launched. In its place, the carrier will be introducing monthly charges that are based on usage instead. Thanks to the change, £35/month contracts will include 500MB of data per month, and customers will be charged an additional £5 for each additional 500MB of data that they use. The new data charges will apply to all new customers and existing customers who upgrade to a new smartphone. Existing contracts will not be affected by the changes until it’s time for renewal. Are you unhappy about this latest development, or do you think that the amount of data allocated is more than enough?
