Selectel Wireless does not seem to have Data Only plans anymore. At least I could not find one on their website.

Project Fi isn’t only on the T-Mobile network. It also uses the Sprint network (AND US Cellular’s network). It connects to whichever towers it wants from those three carriers when in the U.S. (The 3rd, 4th, & 5th largest?)

Charge Mobile Data is now $13/GB, with promotions for purchasing 3, 5, and 8+ GB.

Buy 3 = 0.5 GB free
Buy 5 = 1 GB free
Buy 8 or more = 2 GB free

The classification seems to be incorrect, as well. When you sign up for Charge, you receive a free SIM card to use with any compatible device.

T mobile has a few data options. 2 GB is $20, 6 GB is $35

You need to update, Karma now offers unlimited 4G LTE datta (speed capped at 5Mbps) for $50

Is 5Mbps fast enough for streaming Netflix?

I think it will be fine for viewing on a mobile device or laptop, but to watch on a tv, could be questionable. Here are Netflix speed recommendations.

Thanks for the tip!

Update – Karma has now “pivoted” and no longer offers unlimited. The neverstop plan is now 5Mbps capped up to 15GB and then throttled to 60kbps after that
