On the unlimited data plan, there is a data depriorization threshold after which carrier throttles data speeds to customers that have reached certain amount of data. With Sprint, that’s 23 GB , Verizon and AT&T 22 GB, T-Mobile 50 GB since yesterday and its prepaid brand MetroPCS 35 GB. Walmart Family Mobile hasn’t disclosed what their depriorization threshold is.
