Reddit already had a thread about this but there weren't too many people who have surpassed the 22 GB threshold for throttling. So far, the speeds after 22 GB have been pretty much the same, lending credit to the notion that it won't affect most users unless they're part of a network that uses a congested tower in their area.

I have a mobile hotspot device (Ellipsis Jetpack) that is currently at 4 GB and my cell is at 1.5 GB. Each are treated as separate devices, but I will update when I surpass that magical threshold. If nothing happens, I may have a viable way to watch Netflix, which is a huge deal since I don't have cable/internet.

There's some conflicting info floating around from a few different sources on video throttling. I guess other providers throttle video on cell phones to 480p in some cases, but Verizon has promised not to do that... but that still doesn't really matter if speeds are crippled after 22 GB.

22 GB of data is essentially one season of the Office, or 22 episodes of one TV show, not exactly a replacement for cable... or internet for that matter. We'll see how it goes.

Also, this is the spammiest thread I've ever made so feel free to also talk about how bad the new Save Ferris is.

Yeah, so the other members of Save Ferris wound up in a band called Starpool, but the male vocalist is someone else so it's kinda meh. Both Powell and the rest of the original lineup seem too proud to realize they needed each other. That new song is so boring. Even compared to Modified, it's just soooo cookie cutter. It's like they were purposely trying to make the safest ska song ever.

I just saw Save Ferris on Saturday. They were pretty good. Sounded really good. Lot of fun. I've never seen so many old people skank in my life. But oh man, the new songs (they played 2) were so so so not good. Also the opening band was some 70s revival looking band and they were awful.

Yeah, so that shit definitely got throttled after we surpassed 22 GB. And that sucks that Monique Powell can't make Save Ferris good on her own. She really needs old whatshisface who wrote everything on the first album.

i can't figure out how advertising an unlimited plan and then throttling after 22gb isn't illegal. I know people say it's because technically it's still unlimited... but that's not really how the law/advertising works. I suspect it's just because no one's sued them yet. I imagine in three to five years there will be a class action settlement and everyone on the plan will receive $7 and there will be no more unlimited plan.

Also, while European women aren't usually fat, most smoke, which is a huge turnoff for me personally. But really, what the fuck...it's just a one night stand anyways, so who cares at that point.
