Watching Movies Over Wireless Internet

I want a wireless internet data carrier with an unlimited plan over which I can stream high-quality movies any time I want on my PC and laptop without shaping, throttling, buffering or any other delays, restrictions or penalties.


If you don't offer such a service, could you please suggest a competitive carrier to me that understands where the wireless internet is headed and is gearing up to meet consumer expectations?


Thank you.

you won't get it from cell service

 

As far as the home providers would suggest that you check their forums, a lot of the broadband providers are enforcing usage limits already, chrater, tmc to name a few. Not sure about uverse. It is really a moot point anyway, thebroadband providers are moving to capped services just like cell services are

are you trying to do this on an air-card or on your home broadband connection?

If you're on an air-card, check to see if you're in a 4G covered area and make sure you have an air-card that supports LTE and you should be able to watch HD video with no issues.

If you're using U-verse or DSL, first, check to make sure you have a decent router, make sure your neighbors arent leaching your bandwidth, or maybe upgrade your plan...

let us know if this helps!

First, we're all customers here, except for a few Community Managers (not Leaders) and a few other technical specialist types. They are all clearly identified as AT&T employees. AT&T does not staff every forum with CSR's to answer customer questions.

 

Second, if you find said service, please let us know. Unlimited data, if not dead, is dying, on both wireline and wireless carriers. My Comcast (Xfinity) account is capped at 250GB/month, which admittedly is a lot, but it's no longer unlimited. I don't know any (national) wireless carrier that offers a completely unlimited, unthrottled, unencumbered wireless Internet experience. Reports are filtering out that even Sprint is starting to throttle their Top 1%.
