£4,900 bill for Mobile Broadband


by David Allen

If a user of a mobile broadband service can get a decent internet connection speed, then mobile broadband is a good idea especially for business users who need to stay in touch.

But as with any mobile connection, taking it abroad and using it as you would at home is an entirely different issue.

This is what a lawyer recently found out; she went on a short break to the South of France and took her laptop and Vodafone 3G Dongle with her to enable internet access.

There is nothing wrong with that, apart from the fact that she was using it to access the BBC iPlayer and to download TV programmes including The Apprentice!

However she had not read the small print and believed that her unlimited download package was good for Europe too. Unfortunately it was not and she was charged £4.25 per megabyte!

This resulted in a £4,900 bill which she is refusing to pay because she claims that she was not told about it being for the UK only.
