I'm on the Essential 10 thinking of changing to Liberty Plan because I come to realize that the free zone doesn't benefit me since I am not up that late. Just afraid to lose it so I wanna know if it would be worth changing. Any advice would be appreciated.

If you never go over your 10 GB data allowance, you wouldn't see much benefit from a Liberty Plan.

If you quickly or frequently go over your allowance you'd see much more usable speeds 24/7 on going over.

Essential 10 is a good fit for early risers (3:00 AM to 8:00 AM) that have huge download requirements and can stay under the 10 GB allowance at other times since once you go over speeds become virtually unusable during non-free zone hours.

P.S. Essential 10 is also beneficial to those who don't ride early and can leverage it for scheduled large downloads while they sleep late.

I will say yes it is worth it. I was on a exede evolution plan and it was ok, for the most part and it even came with the early bird free zone (3 am - 8 am). I would normally hit my cap with in 4-5 days but I still had unlimited access to email and webpages and the early bird free zone. The liberty plan has been nothing but great. Your data is basically virtually unlimited. Now mind you if you are doing 100-150 + GB downloads a day then no the liberty plan would not suite your needs. I am currently on liberty pass and I am getting 4-5 mbps pretty much around the clock. If you stick around 5-15 GB per day you should be okay. Now mind you that is still a lot of data that you would be consuming. Just use it and enjoy it. I try to stick around 150 GB per month being so there is no were to be found how much data you can use on liberty pass, so I just referd to the Freedom Plan conditions for the time being. I hope this helps you pick which one is going to fit your needs the most.

I have Liberty 12 and am very happy with it. In beginning had Essential 10 or whatever it was called. Could you use LNFZ but neveer did. I go to bed around 10:00pm. I need my sleep. So switched to Libery 12 plan and works good for me. So far haven't been on Liberty Pass but from what I hear you can still get decent speed. I'm very happy with it.

I am convinced Liberty 12 would benefit me a lot better.
