been burning more data than ever? My usage hasn't changed but I hit like 5-6gb per week now. Almost doubled from before they lifted throttle even though I never got throttled. Are they measuring data different now?

I noticed this too. I used approx. 3GB per month previously, max maybe 5-6GB on a vacation. Now I'm using at least 1GB per day. ha-ha. It's wild.

Meanwhile, I was testing T-Mobile to see if I wanted to switch and I wasn't using 1GB per week.

I posted about this in another thread, and I was told it was me using it. That may very well be, but it sure is odd that the month we get the unlimited LTE upped to 22GB I begin using 5x as much data.

Just means, keeping UDP for as long as I can. With programs, sites, updates etc getting more data hungry, no way you and I would make it on a capped plan.

I never get throttled, I live in a town of 400. I probably make up most of the data on my tower since my neighbors are like 70 lol

No, I'm using the same amount of my unlimited data plan as I did before they changed their policy.

I have heard that wifi assist has been switching people over to cellular pretty liberally even with good wifi connections.
