I've apparently hit some kind of magic bw limit. My 4G LTE is now magically

Last month's usage was about 200gb.
cmon verizon seriously :(
they've been fairly public about 'unlimited' != "unlimited"
I have no issues with a cap, however I have huge issues when a
company is allowed to call a capped service "unlimited". I think
it's straight up false advertising, and I really wish some state
AG's would take up the issue.
ya see that little * next to the 'unlimited' in the ad, right? :(
But what's more interesting is that Verizon's contract for LTE has
_the exact same cap as 3G service_, 5Gb. If Chris is really getting
200Gb before being capped, that is impressive.
PCMag did the math, you can use up the 5GB alotment in 32 minutes
with LTE. Seems like as the speeds get faster the cap should get
larger, doesn't it?
airtime is still the same price for the carrier...
(note that i believe almost all of these arguments are complete bs...
and said as much at the mic in denver)
