UK-based wireless operator is all set to launch a cheaper 3G service next month, according to Unstrung. The company is going to offer HSDPA services with speeds up to 2.8 megabits per second for $20 a month that would allow up to 1 gigabyte of data. There are plans at other price points that include larger download services.
This is much much cheaper than similar plans from rivals (about $40 a month), who I suspect will have to compete by cutting their own prices, thus leading to some kind of price war. I hope to try this (if its available by then) when I am out in UK late next month for the Future of Web Apps conference.
