[PA] T-Mobile eliminates 200MB data plan, new smartphone minimum is 2GB - Page 3

post #21 of 43
Isn't the "unlimited" data with T-Mobile not really unlimited, because after like 5GB or 2GB, you get knocked down to hideous 2G speeds?

When I have 4G, my download speeds are around 8MBps. When I go above my cap, it takes me down to 10KBps.

What would be the easiest way to go over their cap to see what your throttled speed is? I only use maybe 500mb a month regularly because I use WiFi most of the time.

Thats not a bad price.

With Fido my plan is 500Mb at $20 and $5 extra for every 500Mb you go over. So it would cost me $35 a month for 2GB of Data.

Turn off Wi-Fi, tether your connection to your PC and use it for torrenting would be one way.
