3G will be retired soon I heard. I know I'm on the lowest priority when a tower is congested. Other than that you cannot beat the truly unlimited data use.garyb1st said:We've had the unlimited plan for about a year. It's usable when throttled but probably not much faster than our old 3G service. And if you're in the city it's probably going to be limited.

Make sure you have the hardware AND the plan that is activated before May 21st otherwise you might be out of luck!
Semantics, I'm so guilty............ but you are correct!NY_Dutch said:I've had the $65 unlimited prepaid Jetpack plan since January, and even for those brief times network management has kicked in on congested towers, it hasn't affected streaming TV programming. We should be clear that "network management" is NOT the same as throttling. Throttling reduces your speed to fixed low level, usually 600Kbps on Verizon, typically for the duration of your payment period. Network management on the other hand simply reduces your tower access priority on a very busy tower, but only for the period of the congestion. The $65 prepaid Jetpack plan is network managed, not throttled...
