    If you subscribe to premier you can get a lay as you go boost and potentially save 50% per mb on overages.

    yeah, i figured it would be something i couldn't afford. ok, i have clear also, do you know what happens when wimax goes? thanks for doing the math, i thought the 10gb was like $22 though?

    If I had to guess, We'll all drop to a free 3g service(3g on most device will still be A-OK.....)

    1st of all, thanks to all answerers!
    @njfulwider5 yes, been a while :) doing pretty good with the evo, thank you very much. this is for my home computer, visitors & phone when i'm home, so that's why it runs up so much. wouldn't a free 3g be like 500mb?
    @ali thanks, that's what i thought, $21.99. so it would be .01 per mb then? which would make it $10 a gb? which would make an extra 5 gigs $50, + the 21.99 which would be a total of $71.99? believe me i'm no math whiz, so i'm hoping i **** up somewhere, let me know what you think the 10gb + an extra 5 would end up costing me? this gets soooo confusing! thanks, liz
  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    @njfulwider5 well, the 21.99 is great, but 71.99 not so much. my clear is 50 a month, unlimited, just wondering what is going to happen after wimax goes. so like i said, i'm hoping i'm mistaken, thanks for posting that chart. just recalculated, it ends up being $7 per gb, so that'd be 56.99 not 71.99. better, doable if nec. see what happenswith clear.
  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    thinking a 20 or 25gb plan for like $35 wouldn't be a bad thing...maybe unltd for $40? just a thought...

    I have a hub coming and a few other hotspots I don't have yet(for testing purposes)...Not sure if I'd get a big GB deal like that. My comcast cost me 60$ and we still have unlimited data in Seattle. With the way my family uses the net, we run threw a 50gb plan in about 2 days....

    They still claim that the average family of 3 only uses 21gb a month......(But I really think they should up date that one).....

    @njfulwider5 well, i'd love to hear your opinion on how they work. i probably won't do anything till next year, after wimax demise. thinking clear really isn't that fast anyway,may be worth switching to fp if they have a plan that'd be worth it for me. 21gb, let's see, we(2)use 15 & do almost no streaming. oh, i did go for an s3 from best buy on black friday, for $79 i figured what the heck :) you got any of those so i can hock you with questions? hahaha.

    @Elizabeth Merker
    I got the hub....It just looks so good, I have not activated it yet---I can't believe the size--The pictures makes these look so much bigger....

    what did you find out about the plans?

    did you get my message on the S3?

  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    glad it's good looking :) didn't really find anything much about the plans though. just that it would cost me at least a little more than clear for the amount of data i use, it'd probably be better for me to wait & see if they come out with a plan that allows more data at a better price. but i look forward to hearing about the hub for future reference.

    @Elizabeth Merker‌ If you're going to get the hub I recommend the black version... I have it and its so sleek :)

    I think there is a way you can compress your data usage by VPN so you end up saving more ;)
  • djinksdjinks Posts: 1,270FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭✭
    I mostly watch Youtube with data. Compression will not help reduce video data. It is already compressed.

    @djinks‌ I would say the only way for video to not eat your data is quality.

    If you're trying to save bytes, watching you-tube is wrong thing to do. Compressed or not compressed. So if one avoids moving pictures, goes text browsing and uses compression,THEN a lot of bytes are 'saved'.
