$100 a month? I just want to use some data, not buy their towers.
umm...are you serious? 100$ a month for UNLIMITED 4G data for 2 people is crazy cheap. do you pay your own cell phone bill??? show me another MAJOR (not prepaid, not cricket or boost or junk like that) carrier that will offer unlimited 4G data for 2 lines for better pricing.

If the price was $50 / month for one line and they do not throttle after some arbitrary cap, I would consider doing this for my home data connection. Even if I were interested in having unlimited data on a mobile device, the way that I see this is that this is the price point T-Mobile wants to be at for every customer, and I am not buying the marketing. The way I see it is that this plan requires 2 lines even if you only have one. Sorry, T-Mobile, not interested.

If you're an American it may be cheap, I'm not from America and yes I pay my own bill but I use prepaid. My data is wifi only, I've got no reason to use mobile data, it's way too expensive.

These unlimited wireless plans will never replace internet landlines.... it's not feasible to burden a network with so much data use.

Never is an awfully long time, and time usually catches up with never.

Matter of fact, Verizon is offering a deal where they are encouraging such use. If the data was not capped, I would do it in a instant. As I see it, limits are a BS artificial cap so that those doing the limiting can squeeze the wallets of those who subscribe.

I've said it before on threads regarding US wireless carriers... it's just not feasible for them. If they can build out capacity (and lots of it) in large cities and metropolitan areas then there is a chance. But it's just too much infrastructure to build to support this type of initiative. Then you run into the problems with municipalities/cities who have been strict on the deployment of new cell towers.

Where is this verizon deal that you speak of?
