Network demand and data use
If a lot of devices are using mobile data at once, it can put a strain in our network. This is called network congestion, and we may have to slow your data speed to keep everyone connected.
On an unlimited plan? We may temporarily slow your speed at any time if our network is busy. We may also slow it after you use more than 50GB or 22GB of data in a single bill period.
For those plans, we'll text you when you've used 37.5GB or 16.5GB (which are 75% of 50GB or 22GB). If that happens though, don't worry because things will go back to normal when your next bill period starts.

Wi-Fi® doesn't count as mobile data use. Using hotspots on the go is a great way to save your plan data.
