No unlimited plan, thank you

July 7, 2008

There’s been a lot of uproar about the Canadian iPhone plans from Rogers. There are some legitimate complaints: the three year contracts, the 150 minutes for $80 “value” plan, and the overpricing of data.

One thing that I don’t think is a legitimate request is people’s demand for unlimited data. There’s no such thing as unlimited plans, there’s only plans where you don’t know what the limit is. A year ago, I posted a (somewhat silly) rant about the unlimited iPhone plans, which I still stand by.

“Unlimited” sucks. Demand reasonable bandwidth caps or cheap per-gigabyte rates.
