Improved Price Plans for Mobile Web Browsing

BBC News reports general improvements in data price plans from the mobile phone operators, including “flat rate” price plans from T-Mobile, Vodafone, Orange and Three. O2 will be joining them in October prior to launching the Apple iPhone.

Three continue to lead, giving users 1GB of data for £5 per month with their X Series plan – plenty for most users. Vodafone continue to be meanest, giving only 120MB (just over a 10th of what Three offer) for £7.50 a month (although we know that they can often be persuaded to reduce this considerably).

The report also has some interesting stats for February 2007: the Mobile Data Association suggest almost 15 million people use the web via mobile phones each month.
