    Using T-Mobile For Home Internet

    My sister-in-law and her family are currently T-Mobile customers. If I were join her in that plan and use my line for data only in a hotspot device for home internet, when does T-Mobile slow down their data and what speed is it slowed down to, typically?

    I have been using over 200GB data per month and never experienced slowdown.
    New unlimited plan may slow internet speed down after 50gb.

    If depends on your plan, I am on 13 years old tzone $2.99/month.

    It's an ancient unlimited on-phone data plan from the pre-smartphone days. It's not supposed to be used on smartphones, but T-Mo's system has enough loopholes that people have managed to get it to work on some non T-Mo-branded smartphones.

    I never had the $2.99 version, but I did have the later $4.99 version. I gave it up for the also-grandfathered $5 PAU BTV plan (Preferred Android Unlimited Bridge-to-Value). For the extra penny I got a plan that worked on more devices. (I've since given that up too, for a newer also-grandfathered plan.)

    I tried out TMobile Home Internet. Wasn't bad, although it didn't play nice with some streaming services as it didn't have gps or ability to claim that it wasn't cellular. I was getting better than 100Mbps. I actually took it on the road and neared 300Mbps.

    I don't think that's Androided's use of his t-zones plan is affecting anyone else from having anything.
