Best plan for internet streaming
#11
To be honest, I have no idea these days what plans are out there besides Unlimited... because I am just so used to having it. I havent done the math for my calls or texts to know if its a benefit. Just havent considered it.... But for sure, unlimited internet is now a necessity for me...

I just, today, signed up for the Verizon unlimited plan. I am used to a 25GB data cap from my home internet company so it is highly doubtful I will ever reach my limit as I always managed to stay in that range even with watching lots of Netflix. I did add a Jetpack to my plan since it I don't want to kill my phone (which will happen if you use it as a constant hotspot) which puts me at about the same price as I was paying for Straight Talk "Unlimited" plus cable/ home high-speed internet. I am happy with the quality so far and have been streaming music all afternoon without a blip. I did go with the 3G/4G Jetpack for better coverage which was a little more expensive to buy but I think the extra coverage was worth it. I do plan on getting a wireless booster antenna also at some point.

yeah, I've heard of Jetpack.. Heard that the 'hotspot destroys your phone' line is used to promote JetPack purchases...

Either way it actually makes sense (not over-using the battery and CPU) and the extra data will be useful. I've heard it from non-cellphone seller sources too. I'm still paying less than I was, with Jetpack and unlimited data plus phone payment, than I was for a ST plan plus home internet...can't really complain. I'd rather not have my phone occupied with streaming internet if I don't have to...it was only an extra $20 a month

I'm not sure if this is where I would ask, but with the "plans" listed here on this thread, do any of you know if a person would be able to stream internet gaming? Say like World of Warcraft? I play this part time at home and would like to be able to do so in my van once I am on the road. Thank you ahead of time for answers.

Forget my last post... too late to edit... my bill is back down to $70 a month. Turns out I already had unlimited tethering/wifi so they refunded me...

I watch Netflix. They now have an option where you can download movies and tv shows and then watch them offline later. So I can download an entire tv season and then watch when I want. I think there is a time limit but if it expires you just need to connect to wifi somewhere and validate it again. Works great.

I can download plenty to watch anywhere I can get free wifi and have plenty to watch later. If you put it on your phone, ipad, or other device you can easily hook that up to a regular tv and watch it on a bigger screen.

Anywhere there's a strong signal with your provider, you'll be able to.
Be able to with low latency? I don't think so. You probably don't want to play any part or games that you need lowest latencies like PVP. Also, depending on the provider, you might have soft cap around 22gb to throttle you.

Just my thoughts. Try it yourself and get back to us.
