If I use too much data on my Unlimited plan, will my connection speed be throttled?

With this plan, it appears your data is not throttled in the normal sense. In times of congestion on the tower you are using, you data may be prioritized behind other traffic on the tower. Once the congestion lessens, your speed should go back to normal.

It depends on which unlimited plan you have. Please provide that information to the community members.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I have the new jet pack prepaid unlimited plan.  At what point is the data throttled? Does the web page show the usage at that point.  Will I receive an email warning me?

The "Data Usage" tab is a month behind.
