New data cap on so called unlimited plan

This is bogus! You can't do anything with 2G "data access"! I mean come on... 5G is out and we are dropped to 2G?!? What the hell do you suppose we are going to do with 2G??? It's like handing someone a brick and asking them to access the freakin internet with it!!! How is that "unlimited" data?!?!?!?!?! If i cant use my data at 2G then im not getting unlimited data am i?????!!!!???? So im paying $50 a month for unlimited and im not getting what i pay for!!!!!! What a ripoff!!! Good going Boost Mobile you freakin sellouts!!! And no i will not private message an agent! Your agents wont do anything but feed me the same line of b.s. over and over and try to shut me up with a weak ass bribe of some pointless amount of extra data!!! Fix this data cap garbage!!!! Thats what we all want!!! Stick your other b.s. offers in the trash where they belong!!!

Loyal customers are being punished instead of rewarded. We pay the same amount but get less than before.

Actually, looking at their plan page right now it lists the amount of 4G you get with every plan. They all CLEARLY specify that after your allotment you will be throttled to 2G.

 

Sometimes we see what we want?

 

Average 4G use in the U.S. is 11GB / month. This is higher than the world average of about 6GB.

 

May be Boost is having to pay T-mobile for every GB of 4G? Could get expensive.

The part about streaming music not affecting data is BS too. Spotify accounts for a fair bit of my "unlimited" data.

I dont have wifi at home, so I use my phone for everything. I used to like boost till t mobile bought them out . Now i can't even make it half a month with data saver on. That's horse **bleep** cause I even bought the hd streaming upgrade but my data is affected the same.
