Surely we already pay for unlimited data via our current package and simply plugging our phones into a laptop shouldnt affect this?
Absolutely disgraceful if you ask me!

The only other option would be to put a limit on how much wifi you get for free... and if you look at mobile broadband this is just as costly if you need to buy

PS you asked a question... you got the answer...

However it is true that the network, not because of O2 (or any particular network) but because of its inherent characteristics, just can't take more than a small bunch of data users hogging it at once. Therefore, it would not be realistic to allow very cheap or free data access, as the first lucky few would manage to get on, and then the multitude of the remaining customers who then tried to connect would get very very slow speeds or no connection at all... Then of course they would complain about the network being bad, and no chance O2 would be able to explain that this is how the network works

Three seem to offer the best mobile broadband deals. Much much better 3G coverage than O2 will ever have. OK their customer service is dire but you probably wont need to contact them much anyway.
I can also easily get 2.8Mb download speeds with Three PAYG mobile broadband as well. Never seen anything faster than 2Mb on O2 3G.

I paid for the phone, the phones features have been upgraded yet i'm being charged for using them??
LOLz - I guess you're against paying 4x for the MMS too from Wednesday
When I was on Vodaphone (the good days) you're allwed to tether - I used my old Sony to do this and was fine, no problems at all... We can only hope Apple change soon.
