    You have truly unlimited except we throttle LTE to 500kb/s after you reach the 1gb threshold. 3G won't get throttled.

    If you are able to do LTE at 500kb/s as stated above, then going at that speed of usage, a 15 minute run is 900 seconds. The above 500 is also 0.48mb/s x 900 sec gives nearly 450mb. Change bits to bytes, divide by 8. So about 55 MB in fifteen minutes. Not very good for watching videos, but most other stuff is ok.

    when your service downs to 3g.....and you still have service on 3g....nothing changes but the speeds....

    Tethering is not a option after the 1g....But you can still add data---even if you have unlimited... to add to that threshold..USE..Freedom friends....gifting....Completing offers....

    Hi,

    I have a question: when I call, does it uses my internet credit? I can see in data usage that messenger comes first, and it seems very strange to me as I have an unlimited talk/text plan...

    Best regards,
    Marion

    There is always going to be some sort of usage monitor-even if you have unlimited...somebody's flipping the bill...and it still need to be recorded...Unlimited still has its limits...2500 voice min and 5000 text...On the rare occasion, you hit this limit and your account suspends...reaching out to Customer service or a admin and the'll fix the account till it rolls over....

    Do you have unlimited data too? If not, the app does use data, unless your on wifi. If your using Data, It will be very minimal...not enough to count...and if it does count-It is rumored that freedompop credits the account, with the data loss used...

    I personally have not had such credit, but I am on a totally free plan...Not unlimited..

    Good to know cause I was thinking about and assumed with unlimited and reduced speeds you could still tether for home internet and that would be cheaper than clear wireless for me. No one ever said otherwise when I've brought it up in the home broadband section.

    But what's the difference between unlimited on my phone and using it for tethering. I thought FP was more progressive. Netflix on my phone is the same if tethered to my chromecast, computer or playstation or what have you. Long as you don't run a server...it should be all good.

    How is tethering blocked?...does FP send ya a text or letter about tethering? Back in the day even on sprint pda net fox fi & tether me worked. And ya jailbreak for it on iphone, but that was many yrs ago...and I assume none of that stuff works by this thread and me seeing the issue pop-up in another thread.

    next question. if i got 5g for tablet, is it unlimited? like the speed throttles lower to 3 or 2g but i canstill go online even after the data of 5gb at 4g speeds is used ???
    thinking about getting samsung tablet for travelling..

  • rainotarirainotari Posts: 1FreedomPop Newbie

    I think speed throttle applies to he unlimited data plans.
    The defined x GB plans ought to be whatever the radios can support. Given trees, buildings, terrain, etc.

    I have heard of others figuring out a way to tether after the limit...But I only heard this once...they had the phone set up in a NON-Freedompop way...But according to him it was possible....
