Unlimited Choice Data Cap

I just changed to the Unlimited Choice data plan for my family. We have 8 devices in the group. My understanding is the 22GB cap before throttling is per device, is that correct?

I have one user who blows through data and I want to make sure she isn't gonna throttle us all when she hits 22GB, which I'm sure she will.

@gphipps It's per device.

 

And if the tower isn't congested she's not even going to slow down. There are people who regularlly use 100GB+ per month and never notice a slow down.

Although at 3 megabits per second it may be more difficult to use 100+ gigabytes than it would on full speed LTE. 😄

 

But yes, it's per device. No tethering on Choice however

@GLIMMERMAN76

It's slow in the grand scheme of things but the plan is speed capped at 3.0 for the Choice plan.  I usually exceed the cap. Screenshot_20171016-002423.png720p and the download speed exceeds the playback
