Pre-sale Questions

Any Upfront Cost?
Most cell plans include the cost of the equipment in their monthly payment. They also contract you into a two year commitment to recoup the cost of that equipment. Usually costing the consumer over the cost of the price of the equipment. We have no contract. You can walk away from service, put it on hold whenever you like. Obviously if we didn’t charge for the equipment upfront someone could walk away with the equipment as soon as they get it. We try to keep the monthly payment as low as possible. The one time charge, that includes the first month, is there to save the consumer monthly.
Activation Fees?
We have no activation fees. That's what sets us apart from the others. During your research you have come across a few different plans with the same monthly plan or higher. These companies use the same towers and have the same access as we do. Let's keep that money in your pocket.
Can I bring my own device?
Due to the vast amount of equipment on the market and the specific requirements to utilize our network we can not sell Sim only products. We are a solutions provider and our service set to use with Dynami products. The Dynami Router uses an advanced motherboard. Our router is exclusively manufactured to our specifications.
Is it available in my area?
We use three different carriers chances are we have you covered. The best way to find out is to check out our coverage map here
Is there a contract?
Nope!
How does this work?
The different types of internet access are Landline (dial-up), fiber optic, broadband (cable), satellite, and ours Cellular Data. The common link between everyone but ours is your land locked. you use a line to your device or triangulate for satellite. Our service works wherever the network exists, nationwide.

Is the Service Throttled?

What is Data Prioritization?

Simply put, T-Mobile has a policy in place where, if you’re in the top 3% of data users, your access to data is prioritized below other people’s. There’s a practice in place which flags these users on the system. It’s given a brief mention in the “About T-Mobile” page under the consumer tab:

“To provide a good service experience for the majority of our customers, and minimize capacity issues and degradation in network performance, we may manage network traffic through prioritization. This means that customers who use more data than what is used by 97% of what all customers use in a given month, based on recent historical averages, might in some cases have their data usage prioritized below the data of other customers during times and in places of network contention. (Customers who use data in violation of their Rate Plan terms or T-Mobile’s Terms and Conditions may be excluded from this calculation.) “

Now, this is worked out on a month-by-month basis. Customers that are flagged for using more data than 97% of customers in a given month will be reset at the beginning of their next bill cycle. Sadly, there’s no specific figure in GBs downloaded to go by. Nothing anywhere that says that if you hit 20GB, you get throttled. It doesn’t work that way. It’s based on percentages.


Will I feel the effect?

The answer to that is “probably not”. First off, it’s very unlikely that you’re in the top 3% of data users unless you’re going crazy downloading tons of content over LTE. Secondly, it depends very much on what the network conditions are like in your area and how many people are using the same cell tower at once. If you’re a high user in an area where the network is unlikely to feel the effects of congestion, you won’t notice much difference, if any at all.

T-Mobile notes in its communication to staff that the “overwhelming majority of customers that have their data requests de-prioritized are in places of normal network contention. This means that while they may see their speeds drop a bit and will be slower than other folks on that tower, they are still getting really strong data speeds (and are not likely to call in to Care).”

Network contention is where multiple users are trying to access the same tower at the same time. Congestion is when there are so many that services/speeds are impacted.

In most cases, during normal contention, the difference in speed should be small enough that customers won’t even notice the difference. As an example, once customer might be getting 20Mbps download speeds while the de-prioritized next is getting 10-12Mbps.

During these busy times, if you’re in that 3% of high users, your access to the network is seen as less of a priority that those who use much less data.

Congestion doesn’t happen everywhere and only affects a small number of towers. But these are the areas where customers are more than likely going to feel the pinch of drastically reduced speeds if they have been de-prioritized. In many cases, in these heavily congested areas, speeds could be around or below 1Mbps.

De-prioritized customers will – more than likely – see their speeds increase during the evenings and weekends when the networks aren’t as busy. The traffic alleviating measures only really kick in during busy times and on busy sites.


“This is NOT a throttle”

T-Mobile has reiterated a number of times that it doesn’t “throttle” customers. And, as much as this might feel like being throttled to the high users in congested areas, it isn’t. In fact, in T-Mobile’s systems, customer accounts which have been de-prioritized will have a flagged notice which makes it clear that it isn’t a throttle, and that they are being bumped down the network access priority list for using a lot of data. Unlike throttling, which effects a customer regardless of how busy or quiet the local network is. This is an effort to stop congestion from having a serious impact on the network performance rather than being a blanket targeting of every single high data user.

Brandon, the original poster on Reddit stated later on that he spoke to someone from John Legere’s office who reiterated as much to him.

Long story short: Don’t worry about it unless you’re constantly watching movies over LTE and you live in a busy area.
