    I just got a Note8 on T-Mobile with their One plan. They say they limit video streaming to 480p, but (on Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube) I seem to be getting at least 1080, maybe 1440. Are they less stingy about it than they advertise? Do limits kick in after a certain amount of monthly usage? Does it depend on local congestion?

    Are you paying the $10 for 4G hotspot? Because the better video is included with that.

    They claim to limit streaming to 480p on T-mobile One plans. I have T-mobile One, but I got it on a promo that came with free HD Streaming. If you have an old Simple Choice plan you'll also get unteathered streaming.

    Not only do they limit you to 480p speeds on the newer plans, they originally connect at high speed, telling the server to send you 1080p, then switch down to a speed that would be okay for 480p, but you're getting 1080p video, so unless your topographically close to the server you'll get a lot of buffering.

    I have T-Moblie One, just signed up, no promo on streaming. I've watched what looks like 1080p or 1440p for more than 30 minutes at a time with no buffer pauses. Seems too good to be true, so I'm curious whether it'll continue.

    I have my own RPi VPN server ready to go through in case T-Mobile does impose the advertised streaming limit. But so far I haven't needed to use it.
