    Cricket data usage level ?

    I understand and agree with my plans 7.5GB level and that if I go over speeds will be reduced.

    I found out last month the reduction is half of the 1.2MBps down and .98MBps up very tolerable for what I use my service for.

    BUT

    I am the type who likes to pay my bills early would it not be more fair to restart the 7.5GB of data once the bill is paid rather than letting it ride the cycle out?

    If you pay your bill early, I don't think it resets the month. You will continue to get reduced speeds until your new month starts.

    So, if your bill is due on the 10th, and you pay on the 2nd, you will continue to get the slower speeds until the 10th (when your bill is due).

    I hope that makes sense.

    Perfect sense as I discovered it does work that way, just think once a person pays it would be more fair to restart data usage then.

    Just an opinion

    If that happened, you would lose out on some days of service that you already paid for. I guess you could call Cricket to reset your month somehow, but remember you will end up paying more often which will cost you more.

    Just an update after paying my bill yesterday having reached the cap, today (new cycle) speeds went back to normal.

    Happy with the service!

    That's good. I'm glad you're back to the normal speeds.
