Mobile Raising Throttling Limit to 50GB

If you use 50GB of data in a single month, your data usage will be deprioritized behind other users.

One day after we heard that T-Mobile may be planning to increase its deprioritization threshold, T-Mo has officially confirmed the change.

The said document suggests T-Mobile's "Fair Usage threshold" will be increased to 50GB.

To make matters worse, many of these plans have additional caveats. Still, T-Mobile's announcement should inject some healthy competition into the industry - and when carriers compete, everybody wins.

But on Monday, Pelosi came face-to-face with people who say they would be directly affected by any change in policy. "All of us or none of us", they said later.

T-Mobile is all in on unlimited data plans-you can't even buy a traditional capped plan anymore. And so you are aware, all carriers are doing this at this point, it's just that T-Mobile seems to constantly be tweaking (increasing) their limit.

T-Mobile has announced that it has upped the limit for network prioritization to a whopping 50GB, up from the old 32GB limit that was still sitting above AT&T and Verizon's 22GB threshold.

If you're new to modern unlimited data plans, you may be wondering why a plan that purports to be "unlimited" would still have a data cap at all.

Hey! You got it! Most of T-Mobile's unlimited plans include video throttling, so you might have trouble reaching 50GB in a given month. T-Mobile's new threshold more than doubles the threshold from Verizon and AT&T, and that may be enough to tempt users away.
