For instance, one user streamed only two hours of March Madness college basketball, but found suddenly that his entire 2GB monthly data allotment has run out.
The two large wireless carriers - AT&T and Verizon support the high speed network in the U.S. After you pay for your plans, which range from $20 to $50, you can get your monthly data allotment with limitation (the data plan maxes out at 5GB).
You can definitely download more data if you want, but you should pay an extra $10 for every gigabyte downloaded, if you exceed your monthly limit.
