TracFone sets record straight on data throttling for Straight Talk, Net10
With consumers asking questions about throttling policies has become a normal conversation topic, TracFone has decided to come in and set the record straight on their own policies for data. Speculation has had those with “unlimited data” wondering why rumors of 1.5GB throttling limits are coming into play.
According to a statement made on Fierce Wireless, TracFone is saying that, when it comes to the unlimited plans on Net10 and Straight Talk:
Straight Talk’s 30-day $45 “unlimited” plans and $60 “unlimited international long” plans include 2.5 GB of high-speed data. “After reaching that usage, data will continue at 2G speeds for the remainder of the 30-day cycle,” she said. “High speed data is restored once a new 30-day service plan is added. For further information refer to StraightTalk.com.” The company said ii reserves the right to terminate service for “unauthorized or abnormal usage,” as many wireless carriers do.
High-speed data is, as expected, returned to normal once another 30-day plan is added.
