    Default Need network advice

    I'm leaving t-mobile due to **** poor service.

    I'm planning on going with either At&t direct, or one of their MVNO's.

    What I need is 2gb of data and LTE.



    I was looking at the following

    Straight talk (but I heard they don't allow a lot of normal stuff)

    Aio
    Gophone
    Net10


    Anyone know if there are any limitations or anything else that could ruin my experience?


    Thanks in advance

    I just switched to straight talk and I know they throttle after 2.5gb of data use and that you also can't use it to tether, however speed wise so far has been plenty fast for me. I'm not familiar with any of the other carriers.

    Could always go with Aio.

    I saw where ATT was offering some new pricing recently. Not sure if that would make a difference to you.

    I saw Gophone packages for 60 a month, may check into that

    I've known too many people that got put off of straight talk to comfortably go with them. Plus they don't allow streaming

    Have you looked into Walmarts plan? They offer unlimited everything with throttling after 5gb for $45 a month.

    This one.



    It says T-Mobile, but there are some areas that use at&t. Its a prepaid option so you could always try for one month and switch if it doesn't work for you.

    Also, the plan is $39.99, I though it was $45.

    Well your options are limited then.. Most of those sub networks will give you only so much then throttle you a ton so you wouldn't be able to download much of anything .

    And I was mainly just asking what you do so we could also gauge the best option. Are you downloading large files or streaming content etc.?
