Does your monthly wireless data bill seem a bit high? Have you moved everyone to unlimited data plans as it seems more cost-effective and easier to manage?
1. The truth is that your unlimited data plan isn’t really unlimited.
There’s a cap on your high-speed data, no matter what plan you purchase. Although you won’t pay overages, your data speed will come to a crawl (throttle) if you go over your limit. When it comes to your mobile hotspot data, there are clearly defined limits separate from your “unlimited data” before your data is throttled or completely turned off. This is something wireless vendors will never share with you.

Outside of unlimited talk and text, you are limited in the amount of high-speed data you can access. Many companies begin to have problems and think there is something wrong with the services when they just haven’t read the fine print. The good news is There are cost reduction companies out there that are invested in protecting you from this fine print and cost.
