    Jacob Ajit a 17 year old Thomas Jefferson High School student from Faifax Virginia was messing around with a T-Mobile prepaid phone one bored Friday evening. He quickly discovered that he could gain access to unlimited 4G data on the network for free. A T-Mobile prepaid sim card allows you to update your account without having to go into the store to buy more data or minutes. Even if you run out the pre-paid sim gives you limited access to data so that you can purchase more data.

    Ajit found that he could access the T-mobile member portal even though his pre-paid period had ended. Just for the heck of it he loaded speedtest.net and found that it still worked. This is likely a white listed site meant to promote LTE speeds even on devices that aren't active. He then realized that data hosted to test the internet speeds contained /speedtest in their URL. Knowing this he then setup a remote server containing /speedtest in the web adress, which he then ran all of his browsing through the server. This enabled free unlimited 4g LTE surfing. You can read more about his findings in the link below.

    Pretty cool. It's just one more proof that if there's a will there's a way.
