I am currently on a "12 GB Shared Plan" with PREMIUM 4G LTE Data.
I am thinking about changing my family to the "Start Unlimited Plan" that does NOT have Premium data.
How much slower should I expect to experience with my phone during times of "congestion/traffic"? Will it be a noticable drop or is it negligible?
I have Go, which is just Start with a slow hotspot.
It's basically useless when completely congested. Dial up from the 90s felt faster. For an idea, I had to connect to Starbucks' wifi to get useable internet at the food court in one of our malls.
If you like not streaming anything and taking over 20 minutes to download a 35mb app then sure go for it ;).
It really is horrible when you're in a congested area if you have Verizon any of the unlimited. I moved to one with 25+premium and well I get 0.31 mbps which is more than I got with the unlimited with no premium.
Don't even think about it. You'll get messed up. I switched and because the towers I was connected to were considered 'congested' my data rates dropped to .01 Mbps. That is slower than the safety mode and makes your phone useless.
