Every carrier has a different definition of “fair use” for their data services. With T-Mobile, “unlimited” data only equals out to 5 GB. Sprint's Clearwire 4G is truly unlimited, while Vodafone's data ceiling caps off at 500 MB. The company has just stated on its forums that they will charge for data use over that limit starting June 1st.

Vodafone's overage plan is fairer than most. If you exceed 500 MB on a bundle plan worth 25 Pounds or more, you will have to pay an extra five quid for every 500 MB you exceed that maximum by. This is a bit annoying, but cheaper than pretty much every other data plan out there. Users on the basic 25 MB data plan will be charged 50p per 10 MB.

Alternatively, you can go with Orange or T-Mobile UK. The former offers 750 MB initially while the latter offers 3GB data plans. You could also go with O2 unlimited data plan.
