Unlimited Plus: Deprioritization or Throttling?
I currently have the old mobile share plan. If I hit my shared limit I pay the overage and get another GB of high speed data.
I've been looking at the new "unlimited plus" plan as its called. I see it has a 22GB cap and then something happens. I call it something because the website says one thing and I've talked to 3 service reps who say the opposite.
The website says once you hit the cap if you are on a heavy congested tower you may experience a slow down (I'm paraphrasing slightly) for an undefined period of time then you will return to normal. That's fine that's deprioritization. The service reps say once you hit 22GB you will be throttled to 128kbs for the remainder of the billing cycle.
Well these are two VERY different things. I can handle being slowed down then returning to normal speed. I can't handle being slowed down for my billing cycle.
Has anyone gotten this plan and experienced what happens or can anyone tell me what they've heard?
