T-Mobile will allow customers to use more LTE data before throttling them. Previously, T-Mobile said it would throttle the heaviest users after they surpass 28 GB of mobile data in a single billing period. T-Mobile today improved the threshold to 30 GB, which means people can use more data before potentially being hit with slower browsing speeds. T-Mobile says customers who exceed the 30 GB threshold might see their top speeds dialed back only when the network is congested. T-Mobile anticipates this won't impact too many users. The 30 GB threshold resets each month. T-Mobile calls this practice prioritization and says it is primarily used as a way to manage network load.

I pay about $245 per month, of which about $20 goes for a Next 24 for my wife's iPhone 7. And that is for 5 lines and an ipad. Before I do anything, I started a pre paid plan on TMO to make sure the coverage outside of where I live, work and travel has good coverage. I really don't care about data speeds as long as they're in an acceptable range. I do tether now an again, which do count against my 40gb. My youngest daughters phone is paid off, and just need to get her imei to get it unlocked,... (continues)
I do live in Toms River, NJ and work in Pomona, NJ which is just outside of Atlantic City. There are some coverage issues when you get away from the towns surrounding Atlantic City, Galloway Twp. and Egg Harbor Twp. As well as leaving Ocean County, ... (continues)
