    I wanted to see how much data I could use this month (I have unlimited data).

    Drumroll please...

    Won't this just encourage them to stop offering unlimited data?

    I hate Verizon's scummy practices so much I plan on leaving soon.


    Grandfathered plan.

    On Verizon LTE, no.
    The torrent in the picture is a ROM pack.


    My goal is to hit 2TB in a month (not this month though). I can easily download 150GB-200GB per day, hehe.


    I still have to download everything on my seedbox this month (~500GB)...

    Can you explain how you are doing this and they just dont care? Are you paying Verizon directly to be able to tether or are you using some other free tethering service like PDAnet or something?

    I never thought how much a person downloads per month would turn into an e-peen jerkoff.
    ...but i'm honestly not surprised.

    Anyone with the internet to do so can download TBs a month, it ain't hard.

    EDIT: Oh and I know that wasn't the explicit point of the thread, just moreso what it's heading towards.

    Never really was able to use data at all, as even though I had an unlimited data plan, I have Sprint, and living in an area with terrible Sprint coverage, it was even worse.

    This is a bad idea as they have a precedent of pruning top users every month.

    Making yourself stick out like that is asking for trouble.

    I end up using about 20GB a month streaming video and such, but it's certainly not outrageous like that.

    You seem to want to leave though so more power to you.
