O2 CEO puts his point of view for dropping unlimited data

Following on from previous discussions of the dropping of “unlimited” data in smartphone contracts, CEO of UK network O2 Ronan Dunne blogs about the changes and why he believes they are fair and transparent. In any unmetered system, there will be heavy users consuming the most resource – it’s the nature of the arithmetic – but is this a long term plan, a quick fix, or a grab for more income?

Read on in the full article.

Somewhat agree to the metered system

Hi,

I somewhat agree to metered system because the flaw with the unlimited data is some user might be abusing the system. But I also agree to the unlimited system for the peace of mind of the user.

therefore, I would like to tell the rest of the world what is being use in Indonesia for ADSL & cell phone provider.
There were 3 data plan... metered, unlimited, and Multispeed.
the metered plan is obvious.... a metered system.
the unlimited plan is also obvious...

multispeed is the new breed of unlimited. It have a soft limit cap before the speed is downgraded.
for example. let say the internet billing start each month from date 1. and there were 1 soft limit, the 5GB. If on date 5, the user hit 5GB, then the speed is lowered.

example....
unlimited 386kbps, the price is US$ 90
unlimted 756kbps, the price is US$ 150
multispeed 1.5MBps/64kbps (2GB), the price is US$ 10 (after hitting 2GB softcap, the speed is lowered to 64kbps)
multispeed 1.5MBps/64kbps (5GB), the price is US$ 20 (after hitting 5GB softcap, the speed is lowered to 64kbps)
multispeed 1.5MBps/64kbps (10GB), the price is US$30 (after hitting 10GB softcap, the speed is lowered to 64kbps)
multispeed 1.5MBps/128kbps (5GB), the price is US$ 25 (after hitting 5GB softcap, the speed is lowered to 128kbps)
multispeed 1.5MBps/128kbps (10GB), the price is US$35 (after hitting 10GB softcap, the speed is lowered to 128kbps)
multispeed 1.5MBps/386kbps (10GB), the price is US$50 (after hitting 10GB softcap, the speed is lowered to 386kbps)

with this multispeed, user who use little data, can still have fast internet with peace of mind.
and user that use lots of data didn't put a burden on other user.

That can only work with ADSL (landlines) since speed can be capped for every subscriber. I don't think 3G towers enable such functionality.

Here is a couple of proof that cellular data can also be soft-caped.

1. Three
http://www.three.co.id/broadband/
http://www.three.co.id/ShowDoc/BEA+R...mbroadband.jpg

The word is indonesian meaning:
To subscribe sent to 234 (free, the sms to that number is free)
max speed is 1.8MBps
For soft cap 500 MB rates is Rp. 25,000/month (US$2.8) after reaching softcap speed is down to 64kbps. to subscribe sent MAU<space>500MB to 234, to stop sent STOP<space>500MB
For soft cap 1GB rates is Rp. 35,000/month (US$3.9), after reaching softcap speed is down to 64kbps..

2. XL Axiata
http://www.xl.co.id/XLInternet/Prabayar#PIU150rb
Rp. 150,000 (US$17) /month
after reaching 1GB the speed is down to 64kbps

The other GSM/3G/3.5G in Indonesia, such as Telkomsel, Indosat, Axis also have similiar product. but I think this 2 provider already gives the idea. especially since 3 is a international provider that also operate in Europe and Asia (hongkong, thailand)
