The Delimiter office was a little surprised this afternoon when a courier appeared and handed us a copy of The Little Oxford English Ditcionary & Thesaurus. I mean, I know that we make the odd spelling mistake, like everyone does, but wasn’t someone taking it a little seriously? An agitated sub-editor somewhere?
But when we opened the dictionary, we realised it wasn’t out spelling the sender was concerned about. It was the contentious definition of “Unlimited”.
Astute readers will remember that yesterday Optus launched several new broadband plans it described as “Unlimited”. But quite a few readers disagreed with that definition. So, it appears, does AAPT.
Oh dear, Optus. Looks like the ball’s in your court. AAPT’s PR chief Tahn Shannon has a point — do your “Unlimited” plans meet the Little Oxford English Dictionary & Thesaurus‘ definition?
