T-Mobile to restrict 3G data usage to 1GB a month

Posted: , by Nanko R.

T-Mobile to restrict 3G data usage to 1GB a month
The fine print on the bottom of T-Mobile G1’s 3G page reveals interesting but not cool details about T-Mobile U.S., limiting the 3G usage the clients. If your data usage is more than 1GB for a month, your speed may be reduced to 50kbps or less. This is sub-EDGE speed and times slower than the 3G one would expect to use.

Guess their network doesn't really have the stone to run the device.

AT&T's network doesn't have the stone to run iPhone 3G, but they don't restrict it at all, instead people whine and complain about horrible 3G speeds and a terrible amount of dropped calls switching between networks, so I guess that's better than restricting after 1GB. That's why AT&T has to completely rebuild right now, fix all of their problems and upgrade their 3G services... But I'd rather wait months for it to be fixed than have my speed lowered. ???

i know u were exxagerating but it takes 5-7 seconds for google to load which isnt bad AT ALL for a non 3G phone. and im pretty sure tmobile will kick this rule out, or wont really enforce it cuz then wats the point of their "unlimited" data plan.
