H20 caps data plan at 2GB

One of the most common complains about prepaid carriers — any any carrier, really — is the limits placed on unlimited data plans. The carrier will advertise unlimited data with a plan, but the find print will spell out a real limit to that. It’s a tough practice to justify ethically, but carriers still get away with it. H2O Wireless has recently imposed a 2GB cap on its $60 unlimited plan. They even make note of the cap right on the website. So while they have made the service more restrictive without lowering the price, they are at least up front about the actual limits.
