Caveat Emptor: Buyer Beware
You must ALWAYS read the fine print.
According to T-Mobile’s fine print, your data services from them will be capped at just 1GB per month! If you use beyond your 1G they will reduce the rest of your cycle to 50KBPS or less. What does that mean? Your phone would be running at roughly the same speed as your old dial up modem that you tossed five years or more ago! Yikes!
So how much can you download for 1GB? According to Silicon Alley Insider, “One gigabyte is about how much it takes to download the equivalent of a few albums, a decent quality movie, and a decent quality TV episode — not much. Add to that whatever email, Web browsing, file downloading, app downloading, and whatever else you’ll be doing, and it wouldn’t be far-fetched for the power users that Google is courting to hit that 1 gigabyte cap — 34 MB a day — on a regular basis.”
AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon all offer a 5GB cap— that’s five times the amount T-Mobile is offering!
