    (I originally asked this question in the VZW forum, but then it just
    occurred to me that the more appropriate forum to ask is right
    here in the T-Mobile forum)

    I used 1,150GB per month on average. (on VZW unlimited data plan)
    That's one thousand one hundred fifty GB per month.

    Am I a total [language removed] for thinking about swtiching to T-Mobile?

    I never even considered this until this month. T-Mobile had been
    stuck on 2G EDGE service in my city like forever. Until they
    finally went straight to 4G during the first month of July. I tried
    my friend's T-Mobile phone and it got more than 20mbps inside
    my home.(almost 15mpbs inside my office building)

    Please be as brutal as possible in your replies. I want to hear
    the truth.

    I've thought about switching from AT&T to T-Mobile when my contract is up. I just need some real world testing to see if their service is more reliable than it used to be. I say if it's cheaper and reliable go for it. They do have that trial period that you can try for free for 2 weeks don't they?

    It all depends on your location to be honest. It sounds like where you are, it would work for you.

    I wouldn't do it. T-Mobile no longer has a true unlimited data plan. It's capped at 21gb in most areas.

    You have something most will never be able to get (Verizon unlimited), stick with it.

    That's only when the tower is crowded. I have used 50gb+ even month and never have a probelm.

    I would say you are only using this amount of data through a hotspot right? As in that 1.1 TB usage isn't only phone data? If so I would stay with VZW. T-Mobile doesn't offer an unlimited tethering plan (you have to hack to get it).

    FoxFi wouldn't work on T-Mobile unlimited plan? Verizon unlimited also does not come with hotspot, but I've been using FoxFi for many years and it worked great.

    It can but at that amount of usage they will say something after awhile I am sure.

    I wouldn't give it up (the Verizon unlimited plan).

    At the end of the day T-Mobile is a company. Sometimes I think people forget that .. They are in business to make $$. Someone using that amount on a network could hurt it. When these CEO's advertise "unlimited" they def. aren't talking 1.1 TB on average. That is definitely WAYYYY above the average even for unlimited users.

    Verizon makes so much they probably don't care / notice that you're using that much.

    You currently have the best unlimited plan (not) on the market. Don't get rid of it.

    FoxFi's WiFi tethering can be detected on T-Mobile branded phones with Android 4.4 or above. Unbranded phones will be hit or miss but you can typically get around the detection if you have root.

    Verizon's one of the only carriers who hasn't really cracked down on tethering, likely because all their current plans have a hard cap on data usage and no specific tethering limits.

    It isn't capped. TMobile does practice network optimization in which users on unlimited data who use over 21 gb will be de prioritized when there is high load on a tower. During normal times when there is normal load then your speeds would not be affected by throttling /de prioritization.

    Verizon has the unlimited unthrottled, no network optimization 4GLTE hotspot addon for the unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE data plan.

    TMobile doesn't officially support unlimited hotspot, though depending on the device and variant, it could work. But keep in mind that it would be a cat and mouse game. And obviously the hotspot is subject to the same network optimization /de prioritization as discussed above,which Verizon's isn't. But of course Verizon is more expensive. Still, factoring in over 1tb on average, imo I would rather just stick with Verizon.

    So you're paying for phone data and home wifi data. His phone becomes the home wifi saving him the extra bill. How much data do you think you use on wifi?

    I do understand but here no company offers true unlimited data basically they cut ur speed to a crawl making it useless after max 10gb... I just find it crazy that the provider does not go after him for using his phone as a hot spot.
    True tho most stuff I do is on WiFi but even than I never get close to 1T of use I'm lucky to even hit 150gb lol

    The Verizon Unlimited plan is Unlimited as is AT&Ts after being sued 100 million for throttling. And if you use 150gb a month on wifi I'm sure you can imagine how he can use more. It's probably his only source of entertainment.

    I can see that... But that is a lot of data use like lots lol
    I would do same if it was possible here use one for all but unfortunately the providers know better and keep an eye plus don't offer anything that can be abused.

    Agreed. Between it being truly 100% unlimited, the coverage is much better. Keep the Verizon plan OP! If you leave it you'll never get it back

    Canada is definitely different. In America the unlimited plans are actually unlimited (for Verizon/AT&T/T-Mobile) -- there isn't a 10 GB max limit or anything like that.

    So you're paying for phone data and home wifi data. His phone becomes the home wifi saving him the extra bill. How much data do you think you use on wifi?
    I pay for unlimited on my phone and have Comcast at home. I would rather have a wired connection due to what I do at home.
