T-Mobile to pay $7.5 million fine and other penalties to the FCC for 'unlimited data' disclosure problems

There's no such thing as real unlimited anymore. T-Mobile's "unlimited data" marketing isn't all that quick to point out that it comes with some built-in limits - specifically, throttling the top three percent of unlimited data users along with more general users who exceeded 17GB a month. The Federal Communications Commission took exception to some of those commercials and advertisements after several consumer complaints. T-Mobile's settlement with the Commission means they'll have to pay up, to the tune of several million dollars.

Sprint launches new $20 unlimited tablet data plan, but it throttles video, music, and games

Sprint has been trying to stop the slow bleed of customers moving to other carriers with some attractive deals, including an "unlimited" plan aimed squarely at T-Mobile. Now, Sprint has an "unlimited" tablet plan. I'm using quotation marks here because calling them unlimited doesn't get the point across. The new plan has unlimited data, but the speeds are throttled. But hey, it's only $20 per month.

Verizon's 'unlimited' PopData scheme is all kinds of bullshit

Sprint has unlimited data. T-Mobile has unlimited data. AT&T has unlimited data. True, all of these offerings have limits on unlimited, like T-Mo's extra charges for HD video and tethering and how AT&T will only give you unlimited data if you also pay for a bloated DirecTV contract. But Verizon's staunch refusal to allow customers access to the unlimited data spigot, not to mention pushing grandfathered unlimited data customers away, has been a big point in favor of its competitors. Verizon feels so insecure about its lack of unlimited plans that its advertising tries to tell customers why unlimited data sucks.

Sprint unveils another unlimited data plan, but this one actually lets you stream videos in HD (for 20 more dollars per month)

What's better than unlimited data? You guessed it: unlimited data you can use to stream videos, music, and games at the same speed you can stream anything else. Well, Sprint has decided to offer us lucky consumers the opportunity to use unlimited data for the things that motivate most of us to consider these plans in the first place. Of course, you have to pay $20 more per month, per line for that right.

Sprint announces Unlimited Freedom plan with no data cap, but throttled video, music, and gaming

T-Mobile made a big change to its plans yesterday by getting rid of all of them except for T-Mobile One, which offers unlimited data. There are a number of big drawbacks to that plan, but Sprint likes the sound of those drawbacks, so it has followed suit with a plan called Unlimited Freedom. It's a lot like One, but a few bucks cheaper with a slightly different set of restrictions.

T-Mobile announces T-Mobile One, a single unlimited data plan with a surprising number of caveats

T-Mobile just announced a surprise Uncarrier program that will do away with all its current plans. Instead, there's only one plan that T-Mobile is calling T-Mobile One. It has unlimited data, which is great. However, it's not really an unlimited plan. There are plenty of limits that you should be aware of.

You have until August 31 2016 to switch to a new plan if you're abusing Verizon's unlimited data (>100GB/month)

Hey there, you lucky Verizon customer who has been clinging on to your unlimited data plan and thinking you can keep it indefinitely, despite the $20 price hike and despite Verizon's short-lived attempts to throttle your speeds. You know who you are. You know that you've been milking every gee-bee out of that "unlimited" plan, tempting fate a little bit more each time to see if there's really no limit there. Verizon is calling in to let you know that your luck is about to run out.

The carrier, who has been trying its absolute best to kick users off its unlimited data plans (which it hasn't officially offered since around 2011), is issuing a new policy to completely disconnect its worst offenders.
