Worth getting a Big Three Unlimited data plan?

Hi everyone,
I am curious if it is worth getting a Unlimited/Infinite/Peace of Mind plan? I'm with Lucky Mobile on the $40 plan. I noticed that the Big Three Unlimited plans come with Canada wide text and Lucky Mobile has international text. Is there a PPU charge for international text? Is it worth the extra $25 (in Saskatchewan) for the faster speeds and throttled data after the 10 GB cap? Anybody with these plans care to comment on their experience? Did you change your usage after you switched to an unlimited plan (i.e. streamed more videos, music, tethering, etc.)
I use around 3-4 GB a month.

Only you can answer if you need the unlimited (10gb cap) data plan OP.

What's your current plan now & also what you data usage as well?

As for international text depending on your usage now and if you do get the unlimited plan.
You can offset the text cost via using 3rd party app like WhatsApp for example.

Try to get onto a rogers/fido winback plan. $50/15GB. The throttled data speeds is not even that great. If you killed your data already your probably streaming video or downloading which you won’t be able to do on the throttled speeds.
