Good evening everybody,
My name is Laurent. I am a French guy who came here 1 month ago to work in Germany, and incidentally tries to get used to this new language and way of life.
I bought an O2 Surfstick yesterday with a 6-month contract and an upload/download cap of 2 GB/month. And the salesperson told me surfing was unlimited.
Yet, I am a bit puzzled with this data cap stuff Internet providers use with the Surfstick. Unfortunately I do not speak German (yet) and had to speak English with the salesperson so I think there might have been a mutual misunderstanding on various points.
Today I received an SMS stating I had already reached 80% of my cap, though I have just downloaded 2 very small files since yesterday. And I do not really get all the data provided by the Mobile Connection Manager. So my questions are the following:
- Does just surfing/watching videos on the net or anything else is taken in account for the cap? If so, I really do not get the point in paying a monthly fee to have your Internet slow down so quickly just because you surf a lot...
- Additionnally: now, given all I have read so far, I am not even sure there will be no extra fees if I surf after reaching the cap.
I thank you all in advance for your replies and wish you a good night.
