    as I said, I have used over 150 gb and theres still over 10 more days until my month cycle is over lol, you wont get in trouble as long as you have unlimited data they cant do anything to you about it or complain about your usage, they havent slowed me down a bit, I still get around 15 to 20 mbps

    - - - Updated - - -

    so far Ive used 150 gb lol theres no limit for me, my limit go ways past the sky

    On average, I consume 150GB a month, as anyone who peruses the chatter thread will know. I consistently pull 35-40 down, 15-20 up, and -- my personal favorite -- a ping of between 40 and 70 milliseconds. I've replicated these results in use-case scenarios with servers I control, as well as test servers like those used by Ookla's services (i.e. Speedtest.net). I've been running on this setup for a few months, and plan to for at least the next ten. In addition to the requisite unlimited LTE data, I also have an unlimited hotspot plan.

    Neither my line nor the account it is on have been flagged for data usage levels or other criteria at any time.

    Won't happen. It is illegal for Verizon to throttle LTE due to the agreement they made with the government when they purchased the 700 mhz spectrum. This is why they got rid of unlimited and make you drop it if you want a subsidized phone. Its the only thing Verizon can do to try and get everyone to use less LTE and charge you more for the privilege.

    Verizon is trying to phase out unlimited data for 2 reasons:

    1. To make more money.

    2. Is a little more involved, my unlimited data plan is the child of an ancient Alltel plan that goes back to over 10 years ago when data speeds were measured in kilobits per second and phones were more phone than mobile computers. Those who believe that bandwidth is unlimited... no it is not! If you have an unlimited plan and you believe that if you use 100 GB or a Terabyte per month (why not is unlimited right?) that high usage will not force a negative response from Verizon on all users you are deluding yourselves anything that gets abused will be controlled, it is only a matter of when not if.

    Name one instance where those of us who have "abused" what we pay for has resulted in negative response. Your assumption has no backing. You think there will be some consequences but how can you say that?

    My assumption is my opinion that's all, the first negative response has already taken place: Verizon no longer offers unlimited data. I also believe that in time (my opinion) they will find a way to put an end to all unlimited data plans. It is my opinion that as customers with current unlimited plans increase their usage to numbers that Verizon considers not sustainable everyone including myself will lose their unlimited data plan.

    I don't want to be right, I prefer that you were right but I am a realist and as long as there are people that believe that unlimited means whatever the hell I want. It is far more likely that my prediction will be correct... but I hope you are right ok?

    I don't agree. The percentage of people still with unlimited now is reduced by so much from what it was, and the percent of those with unlimited that actually use say over 10 gig a month is even smaller.

    I do agree that they will try to eliminate the unlimited data package in the future by pushing discounts, cheaper plans, any of that. They won't simply drop the grandfathered plans... If they did they break contract (for me at least). I predict they will offer some sort of huge discount for the grandfathered plans and that will force people on a new plan.

    Unlimited plans were not dropped due to overuse, abuse, too much data, etc. They were dropped because Verizon realized they could get people hooked on fast data, make them unaware of how much they were actually using, then charge them for it. The number of people going over their data cap each month > the number of people using high amounts of unlimited data.

    Hello, this is my first post on Android central, although I've been a lurker for years. I had to comment on this thread even though it won't make any difference to the people that don't have unlimited data. I live in the sticks and my only means of internet are cellular, satellite, and ISDN. I've tried them all, and even contemplated getting a T1 as I have a home office, but I couldn't stomach $350 per month for 1.54mb/s, although the latency would have been phenomenal. I finally settled on 3G a few years ago with a verizon affiliate that offered unlimited data with their version of a receiver and some diversity antennas. I was in hog heaven for a while, until Verizon released 4G in my area. After realizing speeds of about 8mb/s down and up with a 4' Yagi antenna, I purchased a 20GB plan and we were off. We use this as a whole house connection with a modem plugged into a Cradlepoint MBR95. My son games, we do occasional youtube, but certainly no VOD or Netflix and we were using between 16-22gb and giving verizon not only $150 just for the data, but going over and paying an additional $15 to $30 each month. 4G LTE is like the Garden of Eden, they give you this massive capacity, but you can't use it. 20GB, heck even 100GB is nothing in today's digital world. After searching around for the best option, I purchased a grandfathered Unlimited plan and now we use over 100GB per month which is very easy to do with gaming, pandora, 3 TVs with Directv VOD, Netflix, my home office downloads, you name it. At my download speed, if I downloaded continuously at the average rate I could hit 3 Terabytes per month as one user stated. Now in my paradigm, that's too much and abusive, but who am I to say. I do know that cable companies and DSL have unlimited data, but they have disclaimers about file sharing, running servers, etc so if detected they can shut you down. I actually got a warning from one of my cable providers in the past because my kids were using Limewire and unknowingly serving files to the internet.

    So to recap, 100GB is nothing for home use. Verizon now has a 50GB plan for $350 which is highway robbery, and they will continue to up the limits.

    Amen to that.! That is rediculous amount. I have a 6 gb plan and I am constantly one my phone and have only used 1gb at most in a month. I do use wifi whenever I can.

    Before I bought cable I had to stream TV on my TV from my phone. You can hit gigs easily and I was saving a bill.

    Hope they never kick us out!

    For home use if you've cut the cable and use Netflix, VOD, etc 100 GB is not an unreasonable amount of data. I have hit that many times since I cut the cord (2008). On a mobile device that's a whole different story. BTW, it is only my wife and I, if you had a couple of kids using Hulu, Netflix and You Tube the sky's the limit.

    With constant use, 3 TB is 1.21 MB per second in a 30 day month. Calling this as nonsense is most likely accurate. That's every second of every day for 30 days at 1.21 MB per second. 3 TB is approx 3,298,535,000,000 bytes. This equates to 102.4 GB per day. I'm not suggesting the phone can't do that, although I seriously doubt it.... but even hardcore gamers sleep, which would severely lesson their consumption and make 100GB+/Day bordering on impossible. As of right now I'd call it vastly improbable.

    Sorry to bump this, but it's already been bumped before from awhile ago.

    I live out in the mountains, hardly anyone around here.
    Cable, DSL, Dialup, and Satellite internet are not options sadly.
    I bought a grandfathered unlimited VZW account on eBay for about 100 bucks, and am using it heavily today.

    I almost hit 1 TB of data usage further back than the 6 month chart will show.
    My family all use the internet heavily, and it adds up like crazy with all the computers we have.



    I don't feel bad about my data consumption.
    We get around 70MBps on the phone, and about 25-35MBps down after the wifi tether.

    Haha. I used ten gigs in one month before I went to T-Mobile out of spite, cause I had the unlimited plan.. I called to cancel and I told them I just wanted to suck as much data up as I could before I left. They laughed at me. Lol.

    If by 'renew' you mean purchase a device at a subsidized price and get yourself in another one- or two-year contract, then you may run into an issue due to the data usage. If you just plan to continue paying the monthly rate (but not extending a contract), you'll probably be alright until the point if/when they send you a letter based on the data usage alone. That's what I've done, and I've been keeping the VZW Galaxy Nexus on that line in the car as a hotspot. In-car WiFi. I don't use more than 250GB in any monthly period, but haven't had any trouble.

    Ah cool, so I can continue paying my 70/100 per month after the contract is up, and I can be on my way?
    Nice.

    Some guy had VZ FiOS and used 70TB in 1 month... Verizon called him to ask him what the hell he was doing with all that data.
    I wouldn't be surprised if I got a call from VZW saying wtf sometime soon.
