Default I continue to love my Verizon plan...

Just bought, and downloaded the low res version of Thor: The Dark World on iTunes. 1.9 GB. Entire movie downloaded in 11 minutes. No limits in sight.

On the flip side, I paid to upgrade GWiz's "unlimited" hotspot on Verizon, and she's used nearly all of it with half a month to go. 20 GB hotspot (up from 15), but 75 GB total. Yeah...what the **** is she going to do on her phone's UI to use 75 GB? I truly wish I could get my plan for her too.

104 GB in May, June will be similar. July will be similar too.

I pay the same premium for her plan as I do mine.

Had 5 people tethered off of my phone today in our all day sprint planning meeting because corporate wi-fi is shoddy in that corner of the building. Still saw speeds of 40 mb/s down.

They don't have to give it away, they are already tapped into all of them.

So you're the reason I have to pay $150+/mo for 8GB.
