You do know that the spectrum has nothing to do with unlimited data right? Surprised

It doesn't matter how much spectrum any of the companies have they aren't going to give unlimited data to anybody because of how the internet has changed.

Think about it. Home internet services are starting note to have unlimited data anymore and they have plenty of bandwidth. But the internet has changed and the companies know that they can make more money by limiting the amount of data. In the case of home internet companies they don't want you watching videos online they want you to buy cable. In the case of wireless companies they have a finite amount of data and millions of subcribers per area. They want their fast internet to be fast for everybody and there is a lot of people whom if they had unlimited data they would use as much as they can as fast as they can hurting other people's data speed.

So don't go on and say that Verizon and AT&T killed unlimited data. It was the amount of stuff on the internet that killed unlimited data.

Think about it. Compare T-mobile with Verizon. Tmo has a lot few customers, which means fewer users using up their bandwidth. Which means more bandwidth per person so they can afford to offer unlimited data to attract customers. Verizon has a lot more customer and so they have less bandwidth person. They don't have the capablities to offer unlimited data to all the millions and millions of smartphone subscribers.

I mean look at AT&T when the iPhone came out. Their data sucked because so many people were using as much data as possible in a short amount of time.
