    I know they throttle you to 2G after 5gb. What are the speeds like?

    4G LTE is pretty quick around here. I'm living in the fringe of 4G reception and manage over 8Mbps down / 512Kbps up.

    When I drive a little further out, past where 3G even makes it, and try anything while on 2G... arggg.... painful to try to do anything real-time (like web surf). But things that can happen at its own pace in the background (like email, weather updates, etc) work just fine.

    2G is very slow - you will definitely notice a difference.

    The $25 plan includes 3G.
    The $40 plan includes 4G.
