“That’s enough to update your Facebook status around 3 times a day”

Thanks to the reader who DM’ed me this afternoon on Twitter to highlight this page on the Orange UK website.

If you happen to be a ‘Monkey’ customer and you top up more than £5 once a month, you’ll get a whopping data allowance.

Please make sure you are not eating any cornflakes before you read the following sentence:

As a Monkey customer, you can get a free internet pass everyday through Orange World.

All you need to do is top up by £5 or more each month to be eligible for a 2MB daily allowance. That’s enough to update your Facebook status around 3 times a day.

Better than a poke in the eye, I suppose.
