- BT is simplifying the schemes. The "Supreme" and "Easy" plans (Nu 399 and Nu 799 per month, respectively) will no longer be available. We suggested removing these plans in a blog post in November 2010.
- The price of the cheapest package is reduced from Nu 149 to Nu 99, while the data quota is increased from 300MB to 333MB, with each additional MB costing around Nu 0.3.
- The Nu 999 plan, which used to be unlimited, will be capped at 5555MB. Additional MB will cost around Nu 0.2.
- A new pay-per-use plan will charge Nu 3.1 per MB.
Here is a table summarizing the new plans:
In addition to having lucky numbers all around (99, 999, 333, 5555), the most important change is fixing a major loophole: the "Unlimited" Nu 999 plan. That plan allowed data card users to download humongous amounts of data for a fixed price, and is partly responsible for the poor performance experienced by users. With all other plans costing around Nu 200 per GB (including home broadband), the Nu 999 plan was a lucrative option for users downloading movies and other big files from the Internet. This is now gone.
The new plans will be available starting August 2012.
