Why I prefer unlimited data....
There is a lot of talk lately about saving money by switching away from unlimited data to a plan that more closely fits your average usage. I don't want to do that, and here's why: STRESS FREE SURFING!
If I have a limit to my usage, I will always have it in the back of my mind. Every time I go on-line I will be thinking about that limit. It takes all the fun out of using my phone as I see fit.
Sure, most months I could probably use a smaller tiered paln. Checking FB, email, and looking up a few websites doesn't use much. But maybe I have downtime and I want to stream some Pandora, or watch a bunch of stupid videos on youtube. I don't want to have to check my account first and see if I'm approac...
ISPs have too much power.
You like unlimited data because if you're going to pay $30 anyway you might as well have unlimited...it's really that simple
I'm pretty sure I said what I meant. Yes, obviously if the price is the same, and one is limited while the other isn't, I'd want unlimited.
My point is that I'd want unlimited even if I have to pay more for it. To me, it's worth paying extra not to have to worry if I'm approaching a limit (even if I almost never do).
...if you hardly ever approach your limit, and KNOW THIS, why would you even stress about it???
Because sometimes I do use alot. Like I said before, it's all about the freedom to use my phone the way I see fit without having to worry about (or even think about) going over a pre-set limit.
I much prefer the Sprint, Metro PCS, and other unlimited models. And if given the choice between the AT&T/Verizon caps and T-Mobile's throttling I would much prefer to get my speed cut if I'm a little heavy on the usage than to have to worry about overages.
