There are so many limitations on that "unlimited" as to make it utterly useless IMHO. How on earth would anyone be able to use "unlimited" data when you can't tether, can't hotspot and streaming is only 480p. Come on that is just silly.

Many end users that don't have fixed broadband could easy cope with the restrictions even the down grade of speed to 1Mbp/s after the 40GB is used up they would notice zero difference as Facebook will still work no issues and WhatsApp / Facebook messenger

Assuming you watch 720p , 2 hours per day


You will only eat up 38 gb


So that's pretty good to be honest.

No hotspotting though. Worthless in my case. I'm on skinny $46, 12gig a month which I cannot even get through. 

 

I don't see how one can get through so much data on mobile alone.

Casting doesn't work the way you think it does.

 

When you cast a video to your TV it uses the Internet connection of the TV, not of the mobile phone. I wouldn't imagine many people have their TV hotspotted to their phone (and in the case of this plan hotspotting is not included by default).

how will this apply if you have a standard tv , ie no internet plugged into the tv whatsoever . or in other words, its a dumb tv just a panel. surely its just getting data from the phone ?
