Anybody hear anything about this? Is it too good to be true? Any info/discussion/ranting will be appreciated.

I never heard of it, but I'd want data on the CUI before I bought into it. I do like the trailing 7 days deal. It's easy to drop your usage for a few days.

I'd also want approval from my job that my device will be allowed past any cyber security rules.

Character user interface?

Cellular Usage Index, a term coined by The Republic and explained indirectly through suggestive FAQs on your aforelinked website.

What is the Cellular Usage Index (CUI)?
Itメs our geeky way to quantify your cellular footprint. We employ an index to normalize things in a world where texts use up a lot less cellular capacity than minutes. Your CUI is calculated using your last seven days of activity.
Hmm, I tend to keep phone conversations brief, I do not text, period, and I currently have no data plan at all. I'd imagine my "cellular footprint" to be quite low, at least now. This may turn out to be a good deal for me.
