No more than £1 a day will ever be charged, with any additional usage being free. There are, furthermore, no limitations on the websites customers can visit, although anyone looking at pr0n will have to prove that they are 18 or over. Users are not penalised for accessing the internet several times a day.
T-Mobile has said that 1 kilobyte of data will cost under 1p however to encourage more use, the company is capping the cost of browsing to £1 a day for unlimited access if the customers is signed up to Mates Rates, Text Appeal and Everyone pay-as-you-go plans.
