    "Just a lil knowledge. Sprint and some other carriers stream their data differently. 10 GB with sprint is maybe 5 with Verizon"

    Is this trash what they are teaching Verizon reps? Or better question, does Verizon downgrade their data quality to the point that it reduces customers consumption by half?

    If there is a difference between data transmission based on carrier, it can't be that big. More misconception from the carriers.

    What? A gig is a gig. It's a constant. It can't be different. Quality of streams may be different, but a gig is a gig.

    A GB is a GB. Approx 1024 MB. That doesnt change. I dont know what they were trying to tell you.

    Don't believe a word. One of the major reasons so many hate Verizon despite having a great network.

    Unless it's an iPhone, then a GB is 1000MB.

    A gig is technically roughly 1,024MB, however people usually round down a bit to 1,000MB. Same with KB to MB.

    No, the concept of data having value differing doesn't mean it's quantified differently. It's the same, the only difference can be the streaming settings set by the carriers such as the downgrade to stream at 480p(for ex).
