    I think that it should be 2GB to start out instead of 1GB. for people who want more usage you should offer add-ons to the usage for a fee, so everyone can get more usage. Offer add-ons from 2GB, 5GB, and 10GB.

    Do you think the data should stop working after the 2 GB, or do you think it should just slow down? How much do you think Cricket should charge for each additional GB?

    I agree due to the fact that I use my Ascend as my PC internet connection at the moment. Just Paid my bill on the 19th and I'm already CAPPED.

    Guess they didnt like the fact that I downloaded a .ISO yesterday [1GB].

    I would be willing to pay a SMALL FEE for extra data usage.

    From what I remember when I signed up their fair use stated something along the lines of a certain amount of bandwidth a month and if it went over it would then get moved over to a slower connection/throttled. For phones I can understand a cap, or throttling. For broadband cards though, I dont believe they sould be throttled or limited. After all, it is being sold as an Internet connection/broadband pipe for those that dont want dsl or cable modem. I tether with my phone ocassionally....more like rarely, so my bandwidth is limited to email, gps, casual internet, etc. It isn't often that I am not near some kind of broadband connection or wifi, even when i travel.

    You said a "small fee". What do you think that fee should be?

    I usually hit just under 1GB so I'm fine with how it is. If they offered 4G service in my area I would hope for at least 5GB, then I could dump my crappy cable modem and tether my internets.

    How much would you pay for just 4G Internet on your phone (in addition to regular phone service, of course)? Then, how much would you pay for a 4G modem that would be just for Internet for your home?

    I think I'd pay $5/month more for 4G on my phone, and maybe $25/month for 4G Internet at home.
