The BIPT is publishing guidelines to throw some light on the use of the term “unlimited Internet”.

The BIPT acknowledges that an FUP can define the limits of the “fair use” in order to guarantee high-quality Internet to all of the network’s customers.

The BIPT, however, finds that telecom operators may only use the term “unlimited” for tariff plans, the data volume of which allows the vast majority of the customers access to the Internet without speed restrictions.

The BIPT thinks that the limit in the FUP should be set at a monthly data volume of at least 3 terabyte. In the case of mobile Internet this is 300 gigabyte.
