I understand that "Us" the people drove you and the other carriers forced you to do a share plan. When will this be unlimited. It is designed just like a greedy corporation to dangle the carrot and get extra charges out of its people. Make it unlimited.. Do the right thing. Hello T-Mobile, good job for listening to your customers. I have decided that with each phone as it comes off contract i will cancel and then have a party in front of a Verizon store... Cant Wait!
Unfortunately, T-Mobile doesn't listen to everyone. Many people have been asking them for as large a service footprint as Verizon, but it seems T-Mobile doesn't listen to those people.
It won't ever be unlimited and if it was you'd be complaining with a day about how slow your connection is. Mobile data is shared resource. If Verizon offered unlimited data on the Share plans everyone would logically cancel their cable/DSL internet and just use Verizon. Since some people use HUNDREDS of GB a month this would bog down the network and it wouldn't work at all for most people.
When you connect to a cell tower you are connecting to 1 of 3 sectors each sector can only handle 150 Mbps TOTAL for up to 400 connections. Not only do those that are not 1 of the 400 that have to wait or a connections to open up if you do math you can see that 400 divided by 150 Mbps is only 375 kbps. Now it only takes about 30 people trying to watch Netflix at 5 Mbps to use all 150 Mbps. What about anyone else that needs to use the network on that tower sector? Are you starting to understand why they can't do unlimited?
As far as T-Mobile, T-Mobile doesn't listen. They aren't within 50 miles of me. Over 1/3 of the US population can't even get T-Mobile service AT ALL. MILLIONS of people have practically beg T-Mobile to come to their area. So where is T-Mobile listening? Also their "unlimited data" only includes 2.5 GB of tethering. Also once they get an increase in 4G customers they'll find they will not be able to offer unlimited data. Sorry you can't escape math and physics and the limit of technology.
We are in our 4th month of switching to a Share Everything plan. We have 6 GB for 5 smartphones. Seriously considering lowering that to 4 GB. In 3 full months the most we used in a month was 2.2 GB and with 2/3 of this month over we are at less than 1.5 GB. This is with 5 phones. It's called wi-fi. You're smartphone is capable of using it. Most of the time it's faster than mobile data anyway.
