    This was a very clear and precise demonstration on AT&T ability to kill your 3G connection if you use too much data on your 'unlimited' data plan.

    I like how the demonstrator does the speedtest on both devices (w/ nothing running in the background), then switches sim cards on both phones and does the speedtests again to show you it's not the device that's wrong but that AT&T has killed off the 3G on one of his sim cards. If it was just one device in the video getting that slow of speeds you could say it was simply a bad AT&T area, but side-by-side you have proof that it's throttling.

    Around the 6:00 mark of the video check out how much slower a website loads on the throttled sim... it's like watching paint dry :eek:
