O2 moves goal posts on iPad data plans

O2 has suddenly updated its data plans for iPad users, with some contracts slashed by more than 30 per cent.

The telecoms outfit is trying to weasel out of the sneaky backtracking by saying the original contracts were promotional offers, despite never mentioning that particular fact in any of its promotional materials.

Anyone who is currently on O2's 3GB for £15 a month plan will soon get a letter telling them they're only getting 2GB for the same wonga from now on. If you were paying two quid a day for 500MB you'll soon have to cope with just 200MB, again for the same cash.

Because the agreements are on a 30-day rolling contract, it seems O2 can do whatever the hell it likes.

We suggest you do whatever the hell you like and take your business elsewhere.

3 currently offers 10GB for £15 a month which makes O2's offering look rather shabby, to say the least.
