3 GB?
try close to 30...

the fine print,,,

Key:
1MB = 1,024KB
1GB = 1,024MB or 1,048,576KB

28,799,748KB = 27.465 GB

Most I ever used with sprint was 8.5GB and that was when I was on vacation in a place where data was actually useable and overnight at home. All the lovely Latina booty shaking videos.

Re: AT&T jacks up data plan prices as usage booms

hm, question, exactly how much speed do you guys need anyways? I mean I can stream videos to my tp2 on sprint without problems, I have an app that lets me watch live tv as well and it might stutter once every 10-15 minutes for 2-3 seconds so I can put up with it. Streams music fine too. Though I can't stream HD too well, it works but TP2 screen doesn't look good with it anyways

So aside from uploading pictures/videos or trying to download large 10mb+ files, what are you guys doing that requires speeds that fast for? is it for tethering or do you needs those speeds solely for phone usage?

edit: I mean sure, I don't get my webpages loaded the instant I press enter, or anything but it's still onlyh 2-10 seconds on average. I'm not that absorbed into my phone that I can't just take a look up and watch trees blowing in wind for a few seconds or say hi/greet someone standing next to me :S

@eyeb I just want to be fast enough to listen to music and watch videos/Netflix. Which is what sprint was unable to provide me with all last year. Now that I went with T-mob I can do those things.

i stream 16 cctv cameras on my phone. they are only 480tvl, but unless i have a min of 1mbs, they stutter hard and only update about every 4 to 6 seconds when they should be smooth.
