    How Much Data on the $50 Plan?

    I have read conflicting posts regarding how much data one should expect on Simple Mobile. All of those posts preceded the reduction from $60 to $50. Does anyone know how much data to expect on the $50 plan? At what point does SM throttle?

    Thank you.

    Thank you. Do they cut you off at 2gb or do they throttle you after 2gb?

    The $50 "Unlimited" data & voice plan is limited to 2gb. The average dl speed I get with this plan is ~ 7 mb/sec (~ 15 mb/sec peak).

    Throttling
    Yes, they will throttle you down once you reach 2gb cap. The new speed is only about 230 kb/sec

    Even with throttling, I had used over 3gb of data before receiving suspension notice.

    Seems reasonable considering Straight Talk SIM T-Mobile customers can hit 14mbps.

    Correct. 6-7 mb/s down, 2 mb/s up on average in MN with an HTC Incredible S (the Asian variation).

    In case anyone cares...

    This morning I measured 7.63 Mbps DL and 1.75 Mbps UL using the SpeedTest app on an unlocked iPhone 4S with the SimpleMobile 4G $50 unlimited plan in two different cell sites north of Seattle which obviously have been refarmed by T-Mobile for 3G on 1900Mhz. Typical speeds over multiple tests fell with in the expected 5-7 Mbps DL range and 1.7-2.3 Mbps UL range.

    So the question is who gives you the most data - simple or straight Talk? I'm on simple $40 and up to 3gb so far.

    That is a great question. I am on Straight Talk now but I'm growing tired of watching my data. I know America Movil owns both but it sure would be nice to know if Simple Mobile, straight talk or net 10 unlimited gives you more data.

    On the T-Mobile Straight Talk SIM vs Simple Mobile, its probably pretty close.
    On the AT&T Straight Talk SIM, Simple Mobile definitely gives you more data.

    is that 3gb over the 2gb cap (5gb total) or is that 3gb total (2gb cap and than 1gb throttled data)?
