Recently I made the switch from simple choice with 22g hotspot option to one with plus international unlimited hotspot. I made this decision because I was told by a senior account rep that when using your one plus international the data used by hotspot does not count twords the 50g shadow cap everyone is subject to and that 50g shadow cap only applies to your handset data used with this plan. That this is why the plan is no longer offered.
I am now thinking this is not true at all. I spoke with someone in technical support who said everything is subject to the 50g cap however this is not my main problem.
With simple choice and 22g hotspot binge on was enabled. I was able to tether basically all of the video I wanted from binge on partners without ever touching my hotspot data cap or the shadow 50g cap. I was told by the senior accounts rep (I mentioned when deciding to switch) that binge on would not even matter with one plus international because anything used by hotspot did not count twords any cap including the 50g shadow cap. That I could and people were blowing out 100s of g of data with no slow down.
After one evening of watching YouTube I consumed 5g of data that is listed in both areas of my data consumption. That is 1/10 of the shadow 50g cap in one night. Using hotspot to a PC firefox browser.
So it seems to me that it would have been far more worth it to keep my simple choice + 22g hotspot over one plus international because there is no binge on with one plus, the data does count twords the shadow cap and in one night I've used more data than I ever had with my previous plan.
Can anyone tell me otherwise? Is firefox not an supported browser?
