  1. Unlimited on US Celluar

    No. That's right. See my post above. We have 4 lines. They charge $130 for the total plan for 4 lines and $20 per line for unlimited that includes can-mex calling. That = $210 total for 4 lines. Then the various discounts that only show on your actual bill kick in to get you to $160. Yes it is confusing, but I have had this plan since it came out and that is how it works out.

    Yeah, I have been on the unlimited since the first weekend the plan was available and have never experienced the throttling others have. At this point I have given up trying to figure out why and will ride it out as long as I can. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just thought I would update I am still not getting throttled on my total plan. No idea why at this point. None of the phones on my acct are. Traveling to the in laws in Illinois this weekend. Still not experiencing any throttling. At this point I can't explain it. Either I am lucky or there is something about accounts based in Nebraska. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Unless you are getting a new device this is bad info. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Also, you guys need to write to tech blogs, wireless blogs, and news sites. I did this but so far nothing. Maybe if they get enough people tipping them they will start writing something. I know to the national guys USCC is small potatoes, but this needs to be reported. It's kinda shocking that there is not one news feed report on this yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    And just an update. Still no throttling on my line or my wife's. Can't check my in-laws lines as we won't be out that way until Memorial Day and they are not data heavy users anyway so they probably would not notice if they were. Just wondering, is anybody here in the Omaha/SW Iowa market? Just wondering if anybody here is experiencing throttling. I don't know a lot of USCC users here so it's hard for me to tell if it is a by market thing right now or not. I will ride this plan out until they hit me and then figure out what to do.

    Two things they need to do immediately 1. Update on the website the actual speed you get with the plan. Ditch the SD and HD stuff and be clear what you are actually getting. 2. The plus plan is mentioned nowhere that I can see on the site. They need to at least let people know it is an option. For some reason they don't want people to know about it. My guess they know that at that point adding the plus option makes there plan not even competitive with Verizon's plan, which is a joke so they are only offering it to people that complain. My opinion is that we're intentionally vague with the details because they knew that would get pounded in the press when they released the plans. 1.5 Mbps speed and a 22gb hard cap is just nuts. But how they thought people would not figure it out is just stupid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So at this point is their anybody else here that is on the total plan and NOT getting throttled? I DO think my video apps are playing SD, but nothing else is slow. I am just trying to figure out what is going on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So I am starting to wonder if my account is being handled the way we thought this plan was supposed to work. I don't watch a lot of video when I am not on wifi anyway, but when I got this plan, it seemed video was still HD, and on apps like YouTube, I could still manually select HD while on cellular. Since speed tests have not been showing that my lines are throttled, I decided this morning to focus on video while on Cellular. I noticed that the quality is not bad, but now not as sharp and detailed as when I am on WiFi. I also noticed that the ability to manually switch to HD is now disabled on YouTube. I did confirm in the settings that HD be allowed on cellular. So I wonder if video apps like YouTube and MLB are being throttled to SD while all other streaming is not impacted.

    So, yeah, that's YouTube themselves saying that, if youre on the HD plan and getting 1.5, that isnt HD. lol Plus, those are the MINIMUM to get that quality, so 8mbps 1080p (unless it's x265) will look like CRAP Haha. You should send this to USCC. Makes sense though. I know ATT is throttling their standard plan at 3mbps, which looks like is where you should be for SD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Still not throttling on any of the iPhones on my acct. Not sure why it seems sporadic. Maybe it is a market by market thing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So with my wife's employer discount that we can't use on the unlimited plan, we could get the 40gb plan which is more data then we will come close to using for $5 more then having 4 lines on the unlimited plan. Kinda tempting if we start experiencing throttling on our phones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Then perhaps it depends what market you are in? That's strange, you would think it would be all or none. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just out of curiosity, what carrier version are you on? Also have you done anything like a *228 update recently? Just trying to think of a reason as to why it would be random like this. Unless it is just in certain markets. My carrier version is 28.0 and I have the 6S+ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
