CUI index too difficult to understand

I dont like playing games in a wireless world.

this CUI index is crap, and i can't see where a user at any given time could tell how much airtime or data usage they had left.

this is more complicated that the FAP systems used by satellite providers.

THUMBS DOWN for Republic Wireless.

I can imagine that the mathematical equation to what you air time is looks only slightly more complicated than the the quantum theory for gravity.

You can apparently scam this index quite easily. Just use your phone at home over WiFi network and run non-stop speedtests or file transfers to up the amount of WiFi usage on the phone. This gives you lots of 3g usage over Sprint network based on examples listed in story.

Don't forget to only transfer within your local network. Otherwise you're using up your ISP's bandwidth cap.

Your wireline ISP transfer cap is many times greater than a typical wireless data cap. I think it can handle it.

It's complicated, but once you understand it you realize it's a pretty good deal.

Unfortunately your mindless rejection is very likely to be the main reaction among customers.

The article says to a maximum of 1 GB over 3G.
