    Sidenote, lots of people have no internet. Leaving their phones as the only source of internet usuage.
    And the @Work business unit is specifically pursuing this target market niche for multi-user LAN access no less. In theory it is targeted for small businesses and failover only usage in large ones, and also in underserved usually rural locations, so congestion probably not so much an issue out there.

    I agree it's wrong when people are cheating on the terms and conditions in order to do so.

    However, I am on a 300 gigabyte per month hotspotting plan, all of it used for tethering, & I get much better speeds than u-verse ever delivered. Can even get static IP, run servers off it if I want to.

    When the carrier is specifically marketing plans for a particular use, then of course there is no moral issue involved in taking them up on their offer.

    My speeds actually increased today at home, with me able to watch Sling TV on my phone. However in my parking spot its still terrible.

    Traditonally at my home speeds are 1 or 2 Mbs. Maybe.

    Have you noticed any deprioritization after 23 gigabyte? Do you swap the sims around as part of your bypassing scheme?

    I can't seem to even load 720p Youtube without stuttering. I think TMO completely maxed out their towers with this move.

    It'll be worse next few months, when there's unlimited LTE..

    no I just stream to 300GB and pretend it's coming from my phone. can't say exactly how but it's possible. I've done over 1TB. no throttle and no deproritizing.

    Do you have BingeOn on? If you do YouTube will fail to play at 720p. It's being limited most likely by BingeOn bitrate of 1.5mbps. And not the load on the tower itself.

    The OP here has very little LTE signal, so i'm assuming it's the main reason for their slow speeds.

    Also the "uncarrier" moves have benefited me directly several times. The fact now that i can go to Canada or Mexico and use my phone just like it's included in my plan, stream all the Spotify and Netflix that i want, and can travel overseas and have free "slow speed" data while keeping my phone calls at a decent rate as well as free SMS (this helps as i go overseas quite often)

    I am one happy camper at T-Mobile and will not be leaving anytime soon.
    Exactly. How do buddy expect to have blazing speeds with so little signal?

No-one needs to see tv shows while out and about. Wonder how many people abuse bing on. What else will be lef6 to use data. They will lewse money. They better not add YouTube. People need to stop taking things for free. I really like 480 streeming John rocks. As a side note Verizon speed test is slower for me.
    Who is u to say what I can watch while I'm out? Wow smh the nerve of some people. Pay for YOUR service and worry about what u do on YOUR phone.

    A lot use their phone as their only source of Internet. I used to work at a phone repair shop, most customers have T-Mobile and I can tell you that I lost track of how many used over 70GB in less than a month. A lot over 50GB in only a few days and seen some use over 200GB in less than a week. I was shocked..thought my 10-20GB was average. These people are just your average joes, not people that would hang out on cell forums lol I've only seen a handful that use less than 5GB in less than a month.

    Edit: The data-hoggers were facebook, instagram, youtube, netflix, snapchat.

    I feel that it is wrong to use your phone and Internet they make home Internet for a reason and is going to mess up network for the rest of us. 20 or 30 gigs is reasonable but not 200.
