Snippet: Weird Pricing on TheCloud

January 13th, 2009 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

I’m just helping somebody find temporary wireless internet access (ideally free wireless in London), and I remembered The Cloud. Their pricing is a bit odd: for Pay as you go access, the price if £6.99 for 3 hours or £9.99 for 24 hours, or you can go for their subscription wireless access, it’s £6.99 for a whole month.

There must be a snag there – who would pay for 24 hours access, when it’s cheaper to get 30 days?

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    I’m guessing that perhaps the subscription plan is £6.99 every month – i.e. if you don’t cancel you are billed £6.99 whether you use it or not. Whereas the £6.99 for 3 hours is just for 3 hours.

    Still, if you can put in the effort to cancel, £6.99 for a month is cheaper, provided there are no further catches.
