The throttling speed literally takes 2 1/2 full minutes to load just this page alone.
    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    Since this happened I did some digging and found out that Cricket actually silently implemented lower data caps into their old 1GB data capped $45 plan, which brings them from their ancient actually unlimited $45 plans to their current 0.2GB data cap $45 plans.

    You can find
    this page


    by viewing
    a specific "unlimited" plan


    , scrolling down to where it says
    "Fair Use Policy"


    in the fine print, then selecting the
    "usagelevel"


    url.

    As a former Cricket customer for over 5 years I found this news very discouraging. I have since moved to T-Mobile, as they actually offer unlimited unlimited. I suggest you check it out and see if they offer decent coverage in your area. If you decide to join T-Mobile and happen to be a member of the
    Freelancer's Union


    (it's free to join) you are eligible for a 10% discount off your bill if you submit within the first ~week of your new plan. At $70/mo, that makes unlimited LTE about $65 after taxes. Is it as cheap as Cricket? No, but it's much faster and I don't have to deal with the "unlimited" bandwidth cap of 200mb. Oh, and it's now
    month-to-month


    as opposed to contract-based like the other major carriers.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
