I'm currently on a $40/month At&t PREPAID sim only, but my data is limited to 3mbps. If I upgrade to a contract plan like Mobile Share Plus, will this remove the data speed limit?

Yes, it will but you don’t have to change to a postpaid plan. You are likely on an old plan. The only prepaid plan that had a 3 mbps download speed limit was discontinued. Change to any other plan, either postpaid or prepaid, and you will no longer have that 3 mbps limit.

You might want to update your plan, that must be very old.
The current $40 ($50 - $10 auto pay) is 8 gigs full speed data.

The question is what prepaid plan do you have? I forget when the 3 mbps was dropped but it may have been since June. That restriction was only on the prepaid unlimited data plan. Now there are 2 different prepaid unlimited data plans and no prepaid plan has a 3 mbps speed restriction.

The current plans I listed have changed only slightly since June. In June, there was a 3 gig plan, but it was full speed data, not throttled.
The only prepaid plan offered in the past 4 years and throttled at 3g speed, is the prepaid unlimited Choice plan.

I stand corrected, it was similar to the unlimited choice postpaid

Did some more testing, looks like my APN settings were slightly off. Speed test was hitting 3mbps for 5 tests in a row, but now it's back to 15mb on 3g and nearly 30mb on 4g!
