    It is not always the fastest. I'm just now just got only 2 mbps. I typically see arount 3 to 6 mbps.

    Simple is deprioritized on Tmo network. But I can usually watch about as much video as I want. Even via hotspot.

    I just finished my second month of hotspotting. 70 GB hotspot out of a total of 100 GB.

    I can live with that for about $25/mo.

    I will get the sim soon and will let you know the speeds. Gwite, what are your plans if this gets capped?

    I've heard people are buying a T mobile sim for 60 bucks, but that is significantly more expensive.

    I would just have to make do with the official 8 GB. Been doing for months without any hotspot at all.

    But I would also try T-Mobile with the same type ebay-preloaded deal. Emphasis on "try".

    Tmobile One has unlimited 3g hotspot, but I have read at least one poster here saying they get full speed hotspot. At the same time another said his Tmo hotspot was almost unusably slow.

    Also keeping an eye out for a great deal on a phone that will unofficially tether with Cricket.

    In fact I just bought the new ZTE Blade Z Max, virtually free from MetroPcs w/port, that may be able to do the Cricket hotspot thing, when unlocked. The previous generation ZMax Pro supposedly could.

    What phone will you be using for your SimpleM hotspot?

    I was going to try using my Lumina 635 phone or my LG phoneix 2... I think they support Tmobile right?

    you can the sim in a hotspot device but you might get a warning about using
    an unauthorized device. so use at your own risk.
