T-Mobile has changed its mobile phone internet policy to restrict file downloads by limiting customer data usage to 500MB a month.
From the beginning of February, T-Mobile's new Fair Use Policy (FUP) will restrict data usage to 500MB a month to contract customers for email and web browsing services only.
The company made a statement earlier saying, "If you want to download, stream and watch video clips, save that stuff for your home broadband. As the average mobile internet customer uses only 200MB of data each month, this will only affect a small minority of users, whom we have begun notifying."
The spokesperson said that customers who exceed the data limits will not be charged and will still be able to access email and web browsing services - only file downloads will be restricted.
The spokesperson added, "Customers who have a need for higher volumes of data will be encouraged to take up a separate mobile broadband plan."
