Well, this is interesting. Starting earlier this week, T-Mobile UK’s Full Monty unlimited plans no longer include tethering.
The Full Monty plans were touted by T-Mobile as the UK’s first ‘truly unlimited’ contracts back in January when it announced them. And the operator explicitly mentioned that tethering was included, and unlimited.
Not so anymore. Thankfully, the change only applies to those who switch to the Full Monty or become T-Mobile customers from now on. If tethering was included in your plan when you signed up for it, you still have it.
One could easily assume that T-Mobile didn’t anticipate the levels of usage that providing unlimited data and unlimited tethering plans would entice. Hence, this measure limiting tethering on the Full Monty plans. Too bad. Well, it was fun while it lasted.
