    I'm gonna run the numbers with our 2 lines. We don't use all of our 8GB or whatever plan we're on, but if the price isn't much different, I'll gladly take throttling beyond what we already don't use.

    So what happens to the old grandfathered plans? Do they also get throttled?

    That remains to be seen. Idk that they can do that if you don't switch to the new plan, though.

    is this 80 PER line... or 80 for the entire plan? cause.... if this is legit it may be what I've been looking for... might actually save me money finally.

    It's confusing. The article I read on it said something like $80 ($45 per line for a family of 4), so idk if that's $80 for an individual & $180 for a family of 4, or what.

    Guess we'll find out tomorrow...

    What I read said $80 all-in (before that boatload of taxes!)....but seems like they throttle after 22GB or something.

    Also thought I saw it only allowed 10GB of tether.

    So not budging me off my unlimited plan.

    ^good point made. Verizon spent all this time kicking people off their unlimited data plan because of the impact it was having for other customers. After getting them off they then offer it again.

    I'm curious what will happen when 5G is official.

    They're offering with throttling legally vs the old . Think bank over the last few years all the games they played with udp users vs this.
