    Are there any true "unlimited data" 4G Cellphone Data Plans?

    Or are there any major savings for people who use 4GLTE to send very large files frequently and need a lot of data?

    http://www.bluefirebroadband.com/plans advertises Unlimited 4G $125/month
    6 Mbps Download 3 Mbps Upload but I haven't gotten a response back from them yet.

    Other outfits which advertise "unlimited" on TV use unlimited to mean you won't be billed for overages but either 1.) your service will be slowed down to "2G" speed which I think would be unusable for me, or 2.) it just gets cut off entirely which would be really bad for me if I was trying to transfer a final file while away.

    I looked at Millenicom's coverage and it's not as good as Verizon or ATT (no 4G one place that I will be going regularly, only 3G.)

    I'm not sure if they are still selling service provided by sprint. Searching I found this:

    and this
    http://www.technomadia.com/2013/10/...k-up-gets-back-together-then-breaks-up-again/

    A thread on Broadband Reports says BlueFire Broadband is selling service on Sprint's network too
    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r28940003-Mobile-Blue-Fire-Broadband
    So I'm not sure if that is workable or not.

    I have to investigate EVDO Depot ( http://www.evdodepotusa.com/ ) and Cyberonics mentioned in the Broadband Reports thread.

    Also found the following which I believe are sprint resellers
    http://www.broadbandqwireless.com/ which offers a 60 GB sprint plan for $139/month but with a $279 activation + equipment fee
    BroadandQ has an unlimited plan too for $119/month; however it's only 3G speed (also on sprint I believe).

    Since I posted last fall, Millenicom is no longer reselling 4G and doesn't look likely to resume. So scratch that option.

    Blue Fire Broadband is offering 60 GB LTE plans now with multiple carrier options.
    ATT has or had a double bandwidth offer for as long as you maintain the new signup; sprint was offering a low price match option too, although both not unlimited.
