    The $60 plan has unlimited LTE. Has anyone had any complaints for excessive data use ? I was thinking of switching and using the unlimited plan as my replacement for my DSL.

    Also how much data is everyone using on it ?

    Not even Metro's unlimited can replace DSL or real innertubes.

    You'll likely end up getting throttled.

    And, you'd deserve to. Phone data usage isn't meant to replace Real home innertubes.

    At home, I use wifi. But when I'm out I use web a lot. I'm on unlimited, but don't go over 5mb per month very much. When I do go over I don't experience any throttling.

    You mean GB? Past posts have shown that some people start getting throttle in the 20GB range & after that. By tethering at my house I could get through that in like half a day

    if your lucky and u live in area that has evdo/3g around 700kbps-1mbps thats truly unlimted but 4g will always be monitored. see the confusion with unlimited data always starts when people tether the only way to easily explain to you why it isnt going to work is to explain to you guys like this, when ya go to a all you can eat buffet yes you can eat all you guys want but if dosnt mean all you can take home.....same principle here its all you can use on your phone not all you can tether off it. hope that clears any confusion ;)

    Not to mention (further using n4zty's analogy), at every AYCE buffet I've ever heard of, after your lebbinty nineteenth trip thru it, the management still has the right to and often Will Tell you, "THAT'S All YOU can eat". (Finish that plate and you're FINISHED.) :D

    This is Bruce being nice. I'll refrain from voicing my opinion as Bruce has said it all. DONT STEAL! It hurts EVERYONE.
