Mobilicity upgrade to 21Mbps HSPA goes live with throttled service to match

Sometimes the leaks are uncannily accurate. As we'd seen just days ago, Mobilicity has flicked on its 21Mbps HSPA+ network, giving customers of the alternative Canadian carrier up to three times the speed of before if they're using new $80 Huawei E366 modem or a compatible smartphone. Unfortunately, the other part of the rumor is also true: there's now a curb on that unlimited data. Cross the (admittedly high) 6GB mark and those speeds may be throttled without springing for the 20GB that comes with either a $20 Premium Data Add-On for phones or a data-only $50 Premium Mobile Data Internet Plan. Despite the suddenly lowered ceiling, the higher performance is a welcome kick in the cellular pants for those who want a Galaxy S III without turning to one of the big three providers.

Mobilicity today also launched a Premium Mobile Data Internet Plan and the Huawei E366 Premium Data Stick to provide data stick customers with 20GB of data at Mobilicity's fastest speeds each month.

Designed for use with the Huawei E366 Premium Data Stick, Mobilicity's Premium Mobile Data Internet Plan, for example, can enable fast and affordable access to 1,400 web pages and 1,400 emails a week, plus the ability to download 850 songs, 300 apps and games and 24 hours of streaming video a month – all at Mobilicity's fastest 4G speeds.
