I read somewhere, might have been here, that Smarty is less tolerant regarding fair use policy than Three. Has anyone experienced this?
Copy/paste bot, they clearly didn't read your message saying you regularly go over the 1TB limit, heh.And here it is.
I was thinking about joining on your unlimited deal. Do you have a truly unlimited policy like the three network or is it limited to 1TB. I regularly go over 1TB due to lots of 4K streaming and very large Xbox game updates.
Hi, thank you for contacting SMARTY Customer Support!
With our Unlimited plan there’s no hidden ‘fair use policies’ within the UK, giving you all the access to the Internet you’d need without worrying about hefty bills and no data speed restrictions.
Even if you used your phone for every minute of every day, you’d only use around 1,000GB each month. We’ve set a usage cap at 1,000GB in order to identify commercial use of our service for example, which is not permitted under our terms.
However, if you’re travelling in the EU, you will be subject to our fair use limit of 12 GB each month.
Thanks Gavin. I'll stick with Three then. If it ain't broke....@eccles I tried Smarty for 1month about 2years ago when seeing if 4G was viable as fixed line replacement. As soon as I hit 1TB the data stopped. While it might be seen that >1TB is outside 'fair use' or 'commercial' is moot, it was a hard limit. I don't know if you could then buy more data for the remaining days of the month, at that point I was satisfied it'd work and went with Three.
What phone you've used?Took the sim for a ride today to Central London.
5G coverage along the way was spotty, maybe 50% that of EE which seems omnipresent, sometimes I wouldn't even get 4G...
The upside however, where I did get 5G it was really quite fast, often breaking the 400 Mbps barrier which I almost never get with EE. You can feel those 100 Mhz of spectrum.
In the Science Museum (cafeteria) I got 450Mbps dl and in other places even over 650.
Surprisingly it even went over 100Mbps upload on a few occasions, not sure how this happened as their 4G is quite bad.
Nothing like my brand new dora phone, this Swiss army knife has 24,000 cameras, a Bitedragon 7482727 processor and has 10Gbps speed on 5G
Now that the Dora can’t doAh but the button on the left of the Fisher Price is unbeatably magical.
One press, you reboot into iOS, another press, you're back into Android, a double tap is retro mode, which is Windows Phone.
Dora hasn't a look in.
That 4x4 mimo in the 5G Pro device really lifts Three, aswell as improvements they may have done on your local base station transmitters.I've had a couple of years with Three 4G home broadband and its been far more reliable than through a landline with which I only got 6Mb max. then got with 4G about 20-25Mb, but as the map where I live has 5G around apart from a circle around my property, I decided to get the 5G service with a better router (5G CPE pro) and now getting speeds on 4G of about 70Mbs! wonder what I'll get when the activate the 5G
