If you’re anything like me who constantly has to answer questions about internet usage and ISP services then you will probably have heard a question or two about unlimited internet usage.
The ‘unlimited internet access‘ is a term really popular these days and the motivation behind so many people choosing a particular ISP without caring for its quality. However, since it seems a lot of ISPs are starting to make it difficult and almost impossible to get unlimited internet and a lot of people still have misconceptions about it I think it will be a better option to address it.
Do you really need unlimited internet to do what you want to do online or is it just another internet access stereotype? Read this article to learn more.
Do You Really Need It?
If you’re so obsessed with getting unlimited access to the internet then the first question I will be asking you is if you really need it. Do you know how much internet data you used last month? What do you spend the most of your time doing online and how fast is your internet connection? Those are just a few questions you should ask yourself.
Sometimes having unlimited internet access is pretty unnecessary since most people who use the so called unlimited internet service only transfer a few gigabytes of data every month. It is important for you to be able to distinguish between what you really need and what you want and on the long run it might pay you to go for a reliable ISP that has a data cap than to go for just any ISP because of the unlimited internet bundle they offer.
How much is it compared to a Minimal Package?
Another thing you need to figure out when trying to get unlimited internet access is the price of the service compared to other ‘limited’ internet packages. The reason I’m saying this is that some people only transfer 5 or 10 GB of data every month yet they go for unlimited internet access which costs at least thrice the amount of a package that would have been able to meet their needs.
There is no point in paying double for internet access you really won’t be using so it is very important for you to research effectively before subscribing for unlimited internet. Try to know how much data you consume and which better, but cheaper, plan will be the best for you.
Read the Hidden-Terms – Is Your Internet Connection being secretly throttled?
This is a very funny problem that needs to be addressed.
A lot of internet users are being deceived into believing they are offered unlimited internet access by their ISPs. They read an advert on a billboard or they see one on their TV and they take the word of the ISP hook, line and sinker believing they already have unlimited internet.
Sometimes a lot of ‘fine facts’ are hidden inside that contract agreement you are signing with your ISP so make sure you read it. You might only have been dreaming about getting unlimited internet access. Read the terms to ensure your internet connection isn’t secretly being throttled.
