I have an unlimited plan (which I'm interested in selling!) and I didn't receive the email at all.. Maybe only some people are getting the message based on usage?

Anyways.. unlimited (or at least 22gb) for $29.95 still isn't bad. And, no overage charges, etc..

I'm guessing it's because the FCC is a lot less.... "regulatory" now, what with the plans to roll back net neutrality. Win for corporations, loss for customers.

I've used 50GB on the AT&T Mobley plan this month that throttles after 22GB. I didn't notice any difference after 22GB and it streams like normal. I don't think it's that big a deal on the iPad plan either, but I doubt people will pay big bucks for it anymore--certainly not $2,000-3,000.

I figured it would come out at renewal time, but I got mine overnight. My usage this current period is by far my heaviest ever, since I moved SIM to hotspot due to bad hotel Wi-Fi, but I think Im only around 6-7GB.

And unless you have a good multiline plan that you can move it onto, there really isn't any prices good enough to switch to. Unless I decided to go T-Mobile, limit my normal usage to 200MB/month, and only pay for higher plans for necessary months. I don't really like signing into my work wi-fi where i can be tracked.

Because it's not a 22GB plan. It's still unlimited.
They can call this: 22GB LTE speed network, and fine print: unlimited access of data in a lower speed.

This could also keep some guys from constantly using their phone or pad to download stuff.

That's not accurate either. You're not throttled after 22GB. You're deprioritized, which means you only MAY be throttled at certain times in certain areas when there is network congestion. Some people can use 100+ GB and never be throttled.
