    Throttling in full effect!!!

    After having used 1.5 gb total all month I'm being throttled to 230-240kbps. Next month I'll be trying tmobilen30 plan.

    Throttling in full effect!!!

    Was this on Simple's $50 per month "unlimited" 4G plan?

    TelCel America, Ready Sim, Ultra, Ptel, Spot Mobile, Go Smart, and more. There are so many Tmobile mvnos right now that there's many more ways to skin a magenta cat then before.

    be careful with tmobile they will charge you for months after you quit paying. hardly pay as you go.

    gosmart looks interesting it says 5gb 3g speeds. i wonder how many Mb/s i would get either way it would probably be fast enough to stream 256k/s music on the road which is what i would want it for

    edit: in case anyone wondering it seems to be around 910Kb/s or 113.75KB/s

    sounds good to me i will probably switch this month

    Hi guys, i couldn't take the throttling speed that low so i went ahead and ported to tmobile 30 dollar plan. After using this plan for a week and a half I'm at 1.7gb and not a hint of throttle. I won't lie I do miss the unlimited minutes but I'm getting by with Vonage app. Speed ranges from 3-8mbps so I'm happy. I'm a bus driver so streaming radio is a must. So far so good.
