Im running mine on straight talk and I get 5-8mbps and 1 to 2 mbps upload speeds. Its a mvno and I beleive att treats go-phone as a mvno as well.

Why not just use st? 45 a month unlimited everything. Some people claim it is not but I havent got throttled or any warnings using their sim.

No but I see no reason to need it...yet with 5-8mbps on "4g" ....go-phone data is like 1 gb or 3gb I think and its so much more expensive

Not sure why that is...but do make sure you are not abusing the data....dont be going over 2.5GB/month in any given month...I along with many users have been straight talk users for well over a year now and never had issues like this...except one time i used over 3GB...just have to be reasonable and not abusive....

The iPhone 5 without LTE is pointless... Seriously. 4g speeds are better than 3G .. But I've clocked myself at 27mbps downloading compared to 4g speeds of 6-8 at best.

LTE is really good

I just stopped using straight talk and now back with At&t, Just got tired of them throttling my account that I never abused.
