    Can somebody tell me why I shouldn't switch to this plan? I am currently on the grandfathered plan. This looks like I would save a lot of money? What's the catch?

    3mbps limit and no FAN discounts, if that doesn't matter to you than go ahead and switch over :)

    I too just switched. I have up my grandfathered UDP and FAN discount for the Unlimited Plus plan. If you don't do heavy video streaming I would say Choice is a good option. I haven't been able to log into my account through the site since the change though since the site itself is under heavy traffic.

    Trying to pull between 12 to 17 GB worth of data (based on your monthly usage) through a 3 Mbps pipe would be a little painful for me, personally. Plus, you're throttled further to 1.5 Mbps if you're streaming video.

    Go with Cricket if you want to save money. I read they're dropping the price of their unlimited plan to $55 with auto pay. They're owned by AT&T and you'll get a higher 8mbps limit.

    I switched to the family plan on our 4 lines and saved over $130 a month. We, all together were averaging 4-5 gb of data per month and having the unlimited was getting crazy.

    makes sense for OP to be confused, new plans are confusing

    Yep, with unlimited choice you get 3gb before throttle,

    unlimited plus you're good on speed until 22gb, and 10gb tether included counted against that 22gb bucket

    You're on unlimited choice? or plus?
