Now that's what I call a fair usage policy

Irish mobile phone operator E-Mobile has just announced a new unlimited calls and text package for around  €50 per month. The advent of smart phones is making voice and text packages less and less relevant but I was amused to see that the inevitable fair usage policy for this plan is 10,000 texts and 45,000 minutes of calls per month.

Now 10,000 texts per month is a lot but achievable by very heavy users but I am perplexed to know how anybody could exceed 45,000 minutes of calls given that 31 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes is only 44,640 minutes.

Some plans have multiple phones

True but I don't see any mention of multiple phones in this plan.

The company themselves even mention that this is more minutes than in a month so perhaps its a marketing ploy.
