    $330 for five smartphone family plan on Verizon. It's a LOT, but still cheaper for each of us than paying for individual plans.

    $26/mo. plus taxes makes ~$40/mo. where I live. I use Vonage.

    I don't include the ISP bill in the cost of my phone service because:

    • I'd have Internet service anyway,
    • the bandwidth used for the phone is nominal,
    • I sometimes use business grade Internet connections.

    That got my attention, so I checked their site. The only plan at that price I saw was:
    $40.00 per month 4GLTE
    Unlimited talk, text and data. First 250MB of data at blazing-fast 4GLTE speeds. Once reached, data speeds will be reduced for the rest of the plan billing cycle.
    250MB is unlimited?​

    Technically it is unlimited because they don't completely shut off the data or charge overages. I agree that it is misleading at the very least.

    So the question is, what does the 4G LTE get reduced to? Something like the level of 3G?

    It could be 3g, EDGE, or maybe even 1x. Depends on how stingy the throttling is from the carrier.

    I have a grandfathered plan.
    I got it back when there was only one 4g LTE android, (the Galaxy Indulge). That must have been 2 years ago
