Some points on the costs of staying connected

Two interesting pieces on the costs paid by mobile users, The first is the “termination fee” paid between UK networks. Ofcom have announced plans to drop this to 0.5p by 2015 but Westminster MP Mark Lazarowicz is pushing to have this lower rate in place in a shorter time frame. Meanwhile the technological marvel of in-flight WiFi is being used by around 10% of passengers where it is available (mostly on US internal flights).

Biggles is on a distinguished road
My bill is around what it was 10 years ago (20), but less than it was 5 years ago (45).

Reason for that is that 10 years ago, all I did was very occasional calls and maybe 200 texts a month, at 10p each. And that was all I got for my 20, although I was PAYG at the time.

Fast forward to about 5 years ago when I got my first contract and it started at 35 a month, which was something like 300 mins and 300 texts, but it had to be bumped up to 45 because whatever the allowances were, I was going over them.

Today, I'm paying 20 and for that I get 600 minutes, unlimited texts and internet.

So yes, I'm still paying the same, but I'm doing a lot more.
