A Valentines gift from Tesco ?

"£2.50 per month unlimited broadband deal set to spark price war"
http://www.mirror.co.uk/money/personal-finance/250-per-month-unlimited-broadband-683957
However ................
12 month only deal, Unlimited downloads (100GB Fair Use)
"Although advertised as unlimited, the price plan is subject to a fair usage policy of 100 GB per month. Customers who exceed this limit for two consecutive months despite being warned over their heavy usage face having their service suspended or even terminated."
So not quite what it seems !

It's also worth remembering: “To qualify for the offer, customers must also rent their landline from Tesco at a cost of £13.75 per month.” .

Re: A Valentines gift from Tesco ?

How are these companies still legally getting away with using the word 'unlimited' ?
A lot of mobile networks are offering 'unlimited' and then imposing a 3Gb limit on the data - thats very LIMITED yet they call it unlimited!
Hulls? - Are you out there?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
