The mobile internet rates to which we have become accustomed to call flat (for allowing unlimited traffic) are considered not unlimited by the operators themselves since they tend to impose other limits (in speed or specific services) because it is a limited technology to ensure that all users can access a service with a minimum guarantee.
But far from an improvement as a response to the launch of the increasingly less limited rates of Vodafone, Orange seems to be opting for being would cautious? and it has clarified on its website that some users were denouncing in recent weeks: Orange flat rates reduce the speed of navigation in two intervals up to 64 Kbps.
Both the Dolphin rates as the Internet in mobile Plus kept the final price of their rates and the maximum speed for consumption included in every room rate but the rest of traffic you will see will reduce speed to 128 Kbps up to duplicate the initial consumption and all other traffic at 64 Kbps thus ensuring a little smooth sailing for those who use these rates to navigate from computer.
The rates are in the following way:
- 20 Dolphin: After consuming 100MB, browser to 128 Kbps for other 100MB)200MB total) and the rest to 64 Kbps.
- Dolphin 32 and Internet on your mobile: after consuming 300MB, browser to 128 Kbps for other 300MB)600MB in total) and the rest to 64 Kbps.
- Dolphin 42 and 59: after consuming 500MB, browser to 128 Kbps for other 500MB)1GB in total) and the rest to 64 Kbps.
- 79 Dolphin: After consuming 1GB, browser to 128 Kbps for other GB)2GB in total) and the rest to 64 Kbps.
Those interested in hiring a rate with no reduction in speed may continue to do so with the rate Internet on the phone from 8 euros/month which includes 300MB and the additional traffic for 4 euros / 100MB.
As we saw in our recent comparative rates for browsing from mobile phones, each operator chooses to act in a different way with its speed limitations and they are currently in 64 Kbps with Yoigo, Movistar (rates 10 to 15 euros) and now with Orange. To 128 Kbps reduces Movistar (iPhone rates), Orange (before doubling consumption), Telecable, Euskaltel, Jazztel, mobile RACC and Carrefour mobile while only Vodafone reduces to 384 Kbps (via the APN website). Without reductions in speed but paying for the extra traffic we have Simyo and MÁSmovil, Pepephone, Eroski Mobile options.
