    @Scott Crump This is only in effect towards Sprint PCS itself and not any MVNO's like FreedomPop!

    Actually throttling isn't illegal, If the plan had a data cap but reduced speeds after the data cap then it's still permissible under net neutrality as long as everything is treated equally meaning that they have to throttle the entire connection and not just specific services, for further reading go here:

    https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-15-24A1.pdf

    and search for the number 153 that entire section says what the FCC's stance is on throttling plans with data caps.


    That doesn't mean that the company can't be reasonably transparent in informing the customers of what the limitations of the plan is. That is what AT&T got the 100 million dollar fine for.

    If you are having trouble with the FreedomPop messaging app registering, always try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it. If that doesn't work download push notification fixer (no root) from the play store. make sure both intervals are set to 5 minutes and click apply.
