I am sick of these carriers trying to bamboozle people. "Unlimited" plans are not unlimited if they are Throttling down to 256kb/sec (which is essentially the same as no internet).

5GB for $30 tablet plan is not that good when 3GB for $15 at Fido has been standard for the last few years

512Kbps, not 256kbps. And before claiming randomly that it is crap, throttle your current internet to 512kbps and navigate around for a bit- you will notice that it is pretty much okay for lower resolution streaming or web navigation.

Some people on these plans are realizing that surfing at 512 Kbps sometimes can be downright painful, but it depends upon the website. Obviously light websites aren’t going to be a problem but complex websites are horrible at that speed.
