News in brief: Monthly cap shrinks to 500MB
T-Mobile has announced it will halve the amount of data contract customers will get under its fair-use cap for mobile internet.
In a note that went up on the T-Mobile support site over the weekend, the company said that from 1 February, it will be "aligning" its fair-use policies to introduce a new cap of 500MB a month. T-Mobile's current fair-use limit for contracts that include internet access is 1GB a month.
"Our mobile broadband and internet on your phone service is best used for browsing, which means looking at your favourite websites like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, BBC News and more, checking your email and looking for information, but not watching videos or downloading files," said T-Mobile.
