Anyone know what new regulations are being brought in by Ofcom?

Something to do with 12 month contracts (or perhaps stopping 24 month contracts)?

Thanks, shuwaz :p

All I know is PAC codes now need to be provided within 2 hours. And from the 'end of May' on ALL UK networks have to offer 12-months contracts to bring the UK in line with EU regulations.

Thats interesting... So that means the networks will counter the 12 month contract by either:
- offering ridiculous prices for average phones.
- or offer older/basic phones.

:D I can picture it now...
Samsung Galaxy S with 600 mins, 500 texts, 500mb data for £50 a month.
Or £25 a month on an 18-month contract; or £15 a month on a 24 month contract.

Glad I didnt renew my O2 contract early! ;)
