Just had a text saying ive exceeded 90 p.c of my unlimited internet usage. Am not happy. I assume using phone as a modem would not have helped. Anybody explain what an mb actually is? And what eats them up? What will happen if i go over? crazy

How can you possibly exceed "unlimited internet usage"?
Or is it really limited, to 100mb?

Anyhow, FYI:
each letter in this posting is 1 byte.
1MB is 1'megabyte' = 1,048,576 bytes.
100MB is therefore 1,04,857,600 bytes.

Yer cvcvcv i was being ironic. Unlimited, my ass! Bleeding Tesco stephen. Been with them 3 weeks and i assume the 100mb is per week as i pay two quid a week for a 7 day pass. It was this past week i used phone as a modem and been particularly heavy on usage.

Be careful, some providers specify in the T&C that using the phone as a modem is against FUP in itself.

TESCO Mobile is the only provider that I can't find what "limit" they impose, despite their "terms and conditions" (ie their contract with you) stating that it will be "clearly" shown on their site.

Phone them and make funny noises asking what the limit is and why it is not clearly shown on their site in accordance with their contract with you.

I'm with Giffgaff, weird name I know but they were posted on here so I had a look. Half price right now so 5 pm for 100 mins, unlimited texts and internet and unlimited means 'unlimited' literally. When the half price offer runs out at the end of the month then for 5 you get unlimited texts and free internet until the 1st October with 100MB limit per DAY!!!!
They use O2 networks too so reliable. I have had no trouble with them, can't recommend them enough.
