Just got my latest phone bill. Waow! I had expected it to be higher this month, but not this high!
I usually pay aroung 50€/month for normal phone conversations. I have decreased it a lot since I tend to use Skype quite a lot now.
This month's bill is 181,52€ incl. VAT. (ie. 151,77 without VAT). That is an astronomical price! I did get a 5€/month (excl. VAT) GPRS option for 5Mb. But I guess that
- testing Kzeo on the Nokia7710 (video on demand of small clips),
- enabling for a while a query of my email every 30 min (I stopped doing that 2 weeks ago),
- launching Agile Messenger every now and then (stopped doing that as well),
- and moblogging everything all the time (I'll keep doing that)...
there you go, over 100€ of GPRS traffic. These guys at Orange are insane.
What a stupid way to kill a market, as I am indeed going to refrain from using the service as much as possible, instead of letting everyone know how cool it is...
I wish we could get an as much as you can eat for about 29,99€/month max. I do get 20Mb/s at home from Free Telecom for that price! and at about 30Kb/s, GPRS is nowhere near that speed, but I'm willing to pay a small premium for the mobility. Not an insane premium.
What do you think? how do your latest phone bills look like ?
