- 421MB of data speed testing because I'm reviewing a service. How's it a waste? I pay for data I can use it however I want. That's not the carriers choice to determine whats worth while and what's not.
Its also Simple Mobile, not Straight Talk.Dec 16, 2012
- Oops, I side with simple mobile then. True, but you could theoretically have another 412mb of unthrottled data. How many speed tests did you run? I lump speed tests in with benchmarks, waste of time. I just switched from SM back to straight talk because att has better coverage in my area. Never been throttled and I usually just stay under 2gb a month. That may be the threshold. Post again when you get full speed back, I'm curious.Dec 16, 2012
- dozens. I'm testing it because I need to compare it to proper T-Mobile service in the same area. I'm reviewing the service, not just having fun. But that's irrelevant. Just because you think its not worth while data doesn't mean that the carrier should shut me down because I ran speed tests. Data is data...Dec 16, 2012
- I agree that data is data. But i can't unsee your data breakdown. My guess is 2gb is the monthly limit. Hope you get your speed back soon.Dec 16, 2012
- T-Mobile throttles nee a similar amount when I go over my 2gb cap. It's not too fun. But I completely agree that you have the right to use the data however you like, and I doubt they care either. They just have an arbitrary limit set.Dec 17, 2012
- I'm fine with T-Mobile doing it because there's a set restriction, and if you're at a lower level you can pay to move to a higher level and remove the throttle.Dec 17, 2012
