Apple has a shiny new Apple Watch, and this one has an LTE radio. Only an LTE radio, mind you, because anything slower than LTE is not worth using. Someone should probably have taken the time to explain this to T-Mobile.
You see, T-Mobile’s new $10/month wearables plan is permanently throttled to 512Kbps, or half a megabit per second. That’s 3G speeds, about the same as you get on airplane Wi-Fi. It’s fast enough to check emails and get texts or calls, but slow enough to make everything else a pain.
