    So, anyone affected seeing any slower speeds?

    I'm currently at 3GB in my monthly billing cycle, and I'm not sure if I'm being throttled or or not at the moment. Either the Internet usage I do is at par with the speeds I've been getting, or the throttling is quite unnoticeable. I'm reading about 1Mbps dl and .5Mbps ul, but that's not surprising given that I'm in a crowded area in a crowded city. I guess I'll have to do another speedtest once my next billing cycle begins at the end of this week and see if I'm getting consistently improved speeds.

    Edit: I just installed the Speedtest.app, so I don't have previously recorded speeds to compare this with. I guess I will know for sure at the end of this week, but until then, anyone else see any difference?

    Well, that's definitely encouraging news! I thought 3-4GB was definitely the upper most limit when throttling kicks in.
