You wascally carrier.

If you have an iPad with data subscription through O2, you'd better sit up and take notice. RegHardware reports that your data caps were just slashed substantially. Customers on the £15/month data plan will now get 2 GB instead of 3. Customers paying £2/day for 500 MB will now be down to 200 MB. The reason why?

O2 claims that the original data packages were only available for a short "promotional" time period. There was nothing said about this at the time, which has made quite a few O2 subscribers understandably angry. O2's response?

“When we announced new data pricing in June we aligned all tariffs to make them clear and transparent for all our customers. Since then, previous allowances have been shown as a promotion on our website. The vast majority of iPad customers are using under 2 GB per month and will not be affected by this change. Those who are can purchase more data if they wish."

These are rolling subscriptions, so angry customers will be able to opt out without giving the carrier another pence.
