So Freedompop throttles your speeds to 128kbps after the first 1GB how fast would that be is it pretty much 3G speeds?

    To me, usable 3G speed would be 600kbps minimum, but the real threshold varies by user. 128kbps is just over 2x dialup (59kbps).

    @Face John 128kbps is actually useable for many things for me at least. The unlimited plan is no longer being advertised with 3G.

    I'm gettig anywhere from 3kbps to 13kbps speeds.
    Nowhere close to 128kbps speeds.

    Took 34 minutes to download a 2MB app from the Playstore.

    Going to downgrade my plan after the first month trial, as I am only paying for 1GB LTE & afterwards, speeds are completely unusable!

    I was throttled to 256kbps that it should be that way then a few days later it went down to 128kbps. 256kbps is acceptable for me but 128kbps is not. I hope it gets fixed.

    Yeah pretty much only paying for 1GB of data the rest is unusable.
