Are these jetpacks throttled back after 15gb?

How's it going. I recently found out that our hotspot is throttled back after 15gb. So I contacted customer support and asked if the jetpack had a cap. The rep told me that it was a connected device and that it wouldn't be slowed down. Today I check my data and see that my data is going up on the device. Is it just a glitch or are these jetpacks throttled back after 15gb?

We apologize for any confusion, or miscommunication. The Jetpack, if on an unlimited data plan, will have a limit of 4G data. After 15GB of mobile hotspot on Unlimited plan, your data speeds will be reduced to 3G speeds.

Hello, I have the unlimited Verizon plan. My question is, do I get 15gb of hot spot per device on that plan or only 15gb for the entire plan that can be used before it slows?

Greeneakers, thank you for taking the time to contact us. We are here to assist. Each line will receive the 15GB of additional Hotspot data. Does this help?

I have the old "Unlimited Pre-paid" plan that I was grandfathered in on. My plan is supposed to be no throttling. Now I can't even get a decent signal(-104 dBm). Seems like Verizon is doing things to "weed out" the old unlimited plans.
