Boost Mobile will start throttling data speeds on January 20

Nearly four years ago Boost Mobile launched its $50 unlimited plan. In many ways it signaled a change in prepaid services. Since then many other carriers have jumped on that unlimited bandwagon. Through it all Boost has offered unlimited data with these plans, with no real restrictions. Starting in January, that will no longer be the case. Boost announced that it will start throttling data speeds for customers who exceed 2.5GB per month. It’s essentially the same policy that sister company Virgin Mobile employs. Once customers exceed that 2.5GB threshold, they’ll see their speeds reduced to 256Kbps until the next billing cycle begins. The policy will go into effect January 20th.
