A new phone plan may soon become available in Europe that exchanges free data and minutes for advertisements. American telecom company FreedomPop has launched a test in Belgium, whose reception will determine whether the plan can be used in The Netherlands as well, De Telegraaf reports.
68 million euro of unused phone credit expires every month. That is on average 8 euros per person per month. The Dutch consumers union, de Consumentenbond, announced this on Tuesday. The union sent a petition to the government to change the expiry date of credit to a least a year after it was bought.
