For me, I honestly notice the difference when I have faster speed and slower speed with things such as my page loads, how my GPS works, search results and other things that I see work faster when I have faster internet. To each his own. If someone wants to pay for slower internet because they feel it will be more stable, that's good for them. For me and what I need data for, speed caps are a no go.
    Here in Chicago MetroPCS is wayyyyy better than cricket and boost. T-Mobile don't need sprint sprint needs T-Mobile and odds are the fcc will block it just like they did the att T-Mobile merger. The government made it clear they want 4 carriers.

    The odds are currently at 90% that it will come to pass. https://www.fiercewireless.com/wirel...for-conditions

    You don’t need 8mbps to play ps4 online. You can get by with 1mbps up and down without lagging. More upload would be more beneficial if you’re hosting a game session, but that’s about it.

    8 Mbps is plenty fast for most uses. Most people who are not cell-geeks have no idea what Mbps they are getting. They touch an icon and it works (or not).

    We have a postpaid AT&T phone, a postpaid hotspot, and a phone with Tracfone-AT&T. They all get the same speed around here and that is 2-8 Mbps. Cricket's 8 Mbps throttle would not make a bit of difference.

    About all lifting the Cricket data speed cap would accomplish is allowing a few cell-geeks to get more gratifying speed tests. That is worth about a bucket of warm spit.

    JMHO, YMMV

    I actually find the speed cap being lifted a refreshing move from cricket.

    I have never been a customer of Cricket Wireless, but I don't like the reviews about Cricket internet service in the web. It seems that it's slow and overpriced!

    Those people are probably in a bad AT&T area or have some other issues going on with their hardware or setup. Cricket is AT&T and if they are good in your area then cricket is mostly good. Pricing is also a pretty great value (especially with groups).

    Sometimes only A5 Wagyu beef will do.
