Just as I was doing my morning ritual of reading my blog sites... spotted this on jkOnTheRun on about New York to Verizon- unlimited does not mean 5 GB
In short, Verizon's marketing advertisement was misleading customers, and those that were affected (i.e. used more then 5GB in their "unlimited" plan) were terminated, rendered them a useless broadband wireless modem. New York state found Verizon's malpractice and misleading conduct and told Verizon to reimburse US$1M to the mistreated 1,3000 customers, and ordered to pay US$150,000 fine.
So there you go... there is no such a nice thing called unlimited, everything has a cost and many carriers still mask this "unlimited" jargon in their pricing. Personally, I don't believe an unlimited-promotion of any deal, there is such a thing call fair-use and works on case-by-case scenario. For what we have in NZ with Vodafone's 3GB+3GB 3G Broadband Pro plan
, it's probably more than average usage for most people, all for NZ$79.95+NZ$10 (of 6GB data).
