There is a lot of congestion from people working and learning from home, and so when you're throttled, it's very noticeable. They raised the throttled speed, but likely not by a huge lot, so what's happening to you is basically normal,and the solution is to manage your data allottment so you don't run out. If you do, then yes, you will need to get a token. John1701q wrote: My niece is doing remote schooling it went over our cap and were throttled so hard that NOTHNG would load at all. It all kept timing out. Had to buy a token just so we can get back online and that she can do her schoolwork. This is not right, that I need to keep buying tokens because we got throttled down to nothing.

If all goes well, it should be pretty seamless, other than the price change and prorated charges you'll see on your next bill, of course. I've had Gen5 since Apr 2017, and it's worked well for me, though everyone's experience is unique to them, of course. I had only had Gen4 for fourteen months prior to that, and I'm glad that I upgraded, first to Gen4 from my legacy plan, then to Gen5. My folks, who live right across the street from me, still have Gen4, and it works well for them.
