Why go unlimited?
With the average consumption of data increasing everyday, the idea of signing up for an unlimited data plan makes a lot of sense. Premium unlimited plans are very reasonably priced these days, with some costing the same as, or only slightly more than standard plans with data caps.
Going unlimited will give you the freedom to watch, listen and download what you want without worry, even when you’re sharing that connection with others.
