    Grandfathered 50$ UDP

    Anyone who has been impacted by the price hike on their grandfathered unlimited data from 29.99 to 49.99 respond to this with how many lines you had impacted by the increase

    What made you give it up? Plain old price piont? As for everyone else reading, why are you still holding on, how much data do you use each month and are you considering changing plans?

    I gave up two of my gUDPs when they went to $50 because I couldn't justify paying twice as much as it would cost to just integrate them into my subaccount's fUDP, and because I really wanted the LTE Apple Watch support and vastly improved international roaming pricing.

    Because I have gudp that's about to rise and wanted reasons to keep it. Plus this is a forum so it's natural for people to start discussions on different topics.

    How much data do you use? I switched to the Beyond Unlimited plan since it was cheaper, and offered better perks like unlimited voice and international data.

    How does knowing how many lines others have help you? You have been asking a lot of suspicious questions.

    There are so many factors that fall into place when choosing the right plan/carrier. It seems like a lot of people have switched to the fUDP from the grandfathered plan. Only you can answer which plan is best. yes the fUDP has a few other perks but if you never take advantage of them do the perks really matter?

    I had four.
    Went to FUDP in Oct.

    Not a lot of reasons to keep a plan that is being disincentivized.
    The price is going up. Tethering is not available. You get de-prioritized like everyone else when you use lots of data. etc.
    For me it was $80 a month to hang on to something that was not such a big deal when the fUDP came out.
    I would have switched as soon as they came out, but I would have had to pay a device penalty on each line since I had bought phones via a Best Buy promotion.

    It was harder and harder to justify and at $80 when the contract expired it was a non-starter.
    I'm now on the fUDP and I don't notice a difference.
    I'm at 25GB on my primary line.
    Line 2 -> 6GB
    Line 3 -> 16 GB
    Line 4 -> 3.63 GB

    I'm happy and my bill actually went down.

    gUDP does not get deprioritized, but there is a hidden 100GB cap. Video gets degraded on gUDP like all other plans.

    I knew about the video throttle. So is the hidden 100gb cap for all lines or just those not under contract?
