50K Mobile Bill For Movie Downloads

It seems like a 30 year old male resident of Bergamo, Italy, also a subscriber to Vodafone’s ‘Connect 600’ plan on the Italian market has been hit with a mobile bill for just over 50,000 Euro for data downloads. While he assumed that his high priced plan allowed him unlimited data downloads in the month, he would leave his computer on for the night and download the odd movie, likely at around the 700mb mark (as movies go).

What he should have done was read the small print – the 600 in ‘Connect 600’ standing for 600mb, every TWO months. Extra bandwidth is charged per kilobyte after that.

Not the kind of phone bill you want after the Christmas period now, is it?
