    Premium data?

    My Wind data speeds are terrible. I was looking at optional add ons, and I saw premium data. Will that increase my speeds?

    Thanks

    No it will not. Just increases your softcap to 10GB.

    Are you using more than 5GB every month? If not, adding Premium data doesn't help.

    No, they just give you gold-plated packets. It's all for show.

    Re: Premium data?

    What speeds are you getting and what is your signal strength?
    And how slow is horrible? Can you stream HD video without pauses?
    I'm curious to see what my speeds are if I get capped, getting pretty close to 5 because of my new phone. Before when I was capped the speeds were a little slow for streaming
