When I heard about your new On and On tariff, I thought great Unlimited Calls, Texts and Internet... Well, there was only 1GB/2GB. I know giffgaff (which is owned and runs on the O2 network), T-Mobile, Three and TalkMobile (runs on Vodafone) now all offer in some way Unlimited Data. Almost everyone has a smartphone or a phone running iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Symbian ect and all these phones are hungry for data. While I understand that you will say that there are network constraints, you allow your sister network giffgaff to do this and we pay alot more than most giffgaff users and other networks. I like to think alot of us are loyal to O2 and hope they do listen to their customers. Obviously you will always get people abuse the service, if someone says they downloaded 250GB or something crazy on their 'phone' then of course you could kick them off the unlimited data, obviously try to warn users first though.
I hope I'm not the only one who feels like this.

giffgaff has hidden limits of around 15-20GB monthly.
It's business model works by having other low data users subsidize the heavy data users.
giffgaff run as a seperate company to O2 though and have to pay them for their data usage, so some of their customers are costing more than what they pay to the company.

Little known thing about Blackberry's: They compress data so aren't actually a bandwidth consumer in the context of say the iphone, Android etc. I've only ever exceed 100MB a few times in three years and I'm constantly using mine.
