How much slower will the 3G service be after I use up the first 10gig of data? My plan was to use this to stream movies but if it is so slow that that can't happen then I don't want to switch. Please advise.
Much slower. 600 Kbps would be barely enough to stream low definition video and only after a long buffer - if nothing else is using the data. That compares to the usual LTE speeds of 12000 Kbps and more.
If that's true 600 Kbs is certainly useable for everything but video streaming. The reality of what I have been told is 128 Kbs is more realistic. If you got your data limit you will not just get dropped to the 3g network. You will get throttled 3g speeds.
ARCTICKAT_1, we always want you to have the best possible speeds when using our network. Can you tell us what device you would like to stream movies with? How will you be streaming (on the actual device, using mobile hotspot feature, tethering, etc.)? There are a number of external factors that may play a role in your speeds so here is a link that gives more information about our new plan: http://spr.ly/65868by1w .
