No, the 2 bucks max is supposed to be $2 per day max. Is your plan the grandfathered Pay Your Way?
I converted to PYW in 2013, is the plan grandfathered one?
I mainly used it for roaming, it used to be 0.02/m in the states and 0.1/m in Europe if I also bought 8 dollars travel add on. Now the roaming charges have gone way up so I just pay 40 dollars every 180 days to keep the number.

I've had my PYW since the beginning of Wind back in 2011. I've kept it mainly for the relatively cheap USA data roaming (and as a backup line). I also have unlimited incoming calls on the account. I was almost going to ditch the plan because my Koodo and Public Mobile plans also offer manageable USA roaming options. Then I noticed the 5GB free data, and figured I'll keep it for awhile. Initially I thought they had given it to me by mistake!

Wind/Freedom is funny. USA data roaming is supposed to be .05/MB, but it always varied, and always ended up lower than .05/MB, sometimes around .02 - .03 per MB.

Same here, I have Koodo prepaid with US roaming data now, I loaded it up when it's like 20 dollars per 1G US data.
Now I was kind of worried if freedom mobile will charge 2 dollars/a day for using data.

I believe that anything more than 50% of its original price is not a good deal

I did a speed test on fast.com this morning. 90Mbps down and 15Mbps up with unloaded latency 14ms and loaded latency 257ms. Very impressive!

Freedom get that fast?
I never have that speed.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

I have not gotten the text yet on the additional gig. I can only hope I do get it. Im on the promo 50 and I do have additional bonus data on my account as it is, so that may factor in in getting overlooked.
