Why did you order the 3 mo plan?!? Are you planning to port again in 3 months? 12 mo plans have the lowest monthly cost.

This was back in December when the 3 month plans were on sale. $40 for the 5GB plan for 3 months is the same as $160 a year.

Yes, but what would you do for month 4-12? Regular price for 9 mo + that $40 would be more than $160, right?

Haven't decided on the next steps and still have a month to choose.

I've got a dual sim adapter on it's way, so 2 x FreedomPop LTE sims are an option. H2O $5-$10 promo sims every month is another.

Or whatever is the best 3/6/12 month deal at the time. Mint had 12 month sims at half price shortly after I got the 3 month one.

Changing phone numbers doesn't matter because the users are on Google Voice.

So one of my kids used by their 5GB of data and the throttled experience was not fun. I had a quick look at the browser speed and it wasn't good.

I put the sim into my Nexus to run Speedtest. Here are the results from 6 tests:

Ping: 25-28
Download: 0.17 to 0.83 Mbps
Upload: 4.08 to 12.27 Mbps

The upload does not seem to be throttled although later tests were at the lower end of the range. Confirmed that browsing and apps are slow.

Compared to ATT & Sprint, the ping is very good. I've always had the impression that T Mobile is good in my area. My wife doesn't find the freedompop global sim problematic even with a high ping, whereas I find the AT&T LTE sim a little slow even with a good ping.

It will be interesting to see how the Tello throttle compares.
