You may not have heard of Republic Wireless before, but it is an interesting new mobile carrier that offers unlimited data, voice, and texting for $19 monthly, the service is contract free as well. Some people read the fine print and found the convoluted fair use policy that actually made that unlimited data limited in some instances.
As you might expect people weren't happy about that and the backlash was swift. Republic Wireless has now announced a complete about face. Rather than tweaking that fair use policy, they just dumped it. They no longer have a fair use.
That means you can pay your $19 monthly and then gabble all the bandwidth you want without fear of paying more or being throttled. The service should be launching in earnest early next year. Nice to see a company turn around on fair use like that.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
