The £1000 data rules are at https://osdatahub.os.uk/ and the pricing tab 


      What is the difference between an OS OpenData plan and a Premium plan?

*Our OS OpenData plan* ensures you only consume OS OpenData. It locks 
down calls to our APIs so that you can never accidentally use or be 
charged for our Premium Data.

The OS OpenData plan is free to use for any purpose, including providing 
services from which you make a profit.

You can always upgrade to a Premium plan later which will unlock our 
Premium Data for you to use.

*Our Premium plan * opens up the use of our Premium Data. This is our 
most detailed mapping and geospatial feature data. You receive £1,000 of 
free Premium Data transactions each month on a use-it-or-lose-it basis. 
Once you've used up your free credit we'll either start charging for 
further Premium Data usage or, if you don't provide payment details, 
we'll pause your ability to make calls to our Premium Data until the 
next month when you receive another £1,000 of free Premium Data^*
