Unlimited data fair use policy removal

33 Signatures | Petition Ended

Created March 20, 2011 by warren


This is to petition Ofcom to get communication providers to remove the word unlimited from their product descriptions where a fair use policy exists.

The oxford dictionary describes the word unlimited as:

1 not limited or restricted in terms of number, quantity, or extent:

If you are sold a product as unlimited that is what it should be, companies should no longer be able to use unfair practices enforcing restrictions when their product contains the word unlimited.

I urge everyone in the UK to sign this petition and stop companies falsifying their advertisements to sell their products.

As an example:

BT option 3 broadband unlimited has a fair usage policy of 100GB per month, logic dictates then that option 3 is 100GB and not unlimited.

    Mobile phone providers should be included with this, as they regularly touted unlimited internet which was far less than unlimited.

    I agree this is unfair and very misleading

  10. David Elliott Sheildhill UNITED KINGDOM

    Totally agree. I wish the would drop their traffic management policy as well. We are paying to use their network so why are we getting limited for using it?
