    That URL still exists; the block of text I quoted is about a third of the
    way down the page - just use your browser's 'find in page' or equivalent
    tool to look for

    web bolt on

    which occurs several times. The block of text you quoted is there too;
    that page has been designed to confuse, but the general advice that
    streaming is not permitted and that there is a fair usage limit of 200MB
    per month is still my best interpretation of it. What O2 atually choose
    to do in practice about any particular user's usage is anybody's guess.

    Ah I see the bit you quoted in the Pay & Go sections and Business sections
    of that page, however the standard Pay Monthly section only features the
    part I quoted. It may be that the P&G / Business terms are different but
    certainly for standard pay monthly customers there is no indication that a
    200Mb limitation still exists.
