Virgin Mobile USA to start data throttling

Virgin Mobile USA to start data throttling

I think we all knew the day was inevitable when the final carrier offering truly unlimited data would start throttling users and that day is now here. Virgin Mobile will start to throttle the heaviest users of data on the pre-paid service.

If you are wondering what Virgin considers a heavy user and if the throttling will affect you at least Sprint gives a clear indication of who it will be slowing down.

Verizon Educates Users with Fact Sheet About Data Usage

If you're not one of the thousands and thousands of world citizens that have subscribed to the idea that you need a smartphone to function normally in society, you undoubtedly have you reasons. Cost is of course prohibitive, and some people just don't see the need (weird!), but I'd wager to guess one of the most giant reasons people do not seek to further their understanding of this new handheld device world is the fact that they're confused about data costs.

Verizon Begins Offering Unlimited Data in Prepaid Fashion, 3G Smartphones Included

Prepaid services have been around for awhile, but for the longest time they were never good enough to catch the attention of the average consumer. After all, there's a lot hanging on that contract-free plan. You not only miss out on minutes, but it used to be that you didn't even get the same reception as the customers who signed a contract. Furthermore, you had to buy the phone out-right, without that discounted price tag. Well, while you still have to buy the phone out-right, prepaid plans have certainly become more popular, and Verizon has just made it even more attractive with the announcement that unlimited prepaid plans are now available. Oh, and you can use a Droid X, too.
