Mobile broadband users thinking of taking advantage of Virgin Media's new 30p per day offer should look at their average usage, one expert says.
David Allen of Tech Watch has said that although the 25MB daily data usage allowance would seem minimal to some, for those requiring the service simply to read and respond to emails the provision is "just fine".
But, he warned, those exceeding their allowance could find themselves in receipt of a hefty bill, especially where video streaming and other bandwidth gobbling applications are concerned.
He commented: "The terms of service do exclude business, international, file sharing, VOIP and video calls, and going over the data limit could work out expensive.
"Virgin Media will charge £2 per MB, but this service is the cheapest around by a long way at the moment, so costs would need to be weighed up."
The new Virgin Media offering is open to both contract and pre-pay customers and comes onto the market next Monday (December 8th).
