    Just trying to get a snapshot of what AT&T is doing to UDP customers these days. I haven't gone over 5gb recently so to add myself to the pot I'm going to push my data over 5gb tonight by letting my Slingplayer app run for the next 3 1/2 hours. Then I'll see what I'm getting in the morning or shortly afterwards.

    If people can also add into the mix if they're getting throttled (or not) in the near future it would be helpful. Thanks!!

    In August I was throttled the second I hit 5GB. In September I hit about 5.1GB and was never throttled.

    Was throttled last month while on vacation. Dropped my unlimited data for the mobile share plan.

    Update: ran my usage up to 5gb and was promptly throttled. Hadn't gone over 5gb in the last 5 months. Throttling seems to be the same as it has been with AT&T. We'll see if any change happens with the throttling limits in the upcoming months. I'm still on the fence about staying on this plan or going to the Mobile Share plan.

    3 months in a row now I've been throttled promptly at 5gb mark. I am Oklahoma. Already at 3.7gb 1.5 weeks into billing cycle.

    Received text from ATT saying I was close to 5gb for the month. Lucky it was the last day. First time ever in 5 years to get this text.

    Hey guys, what LTE speeds are you getting while being throttled? 1 - 2mbps?

    And what is team red going to give you now that AT&T isn't? UDPs are not for sale anymore.

    My usual usage is 3-4gb. But I have gone to 6.3 and not been throttled but did receive the message.

    Not leaving ATT as it is still the cheapest for the 5gb of data. I will be glad to pay if I went over but that would be rare.

    I get throttled every month I assume. My iPhone still feels the same. Wouldn't know I was being throttled until I've read posts on this forum.

    I have been throttled for the first time ever. Received the text message from ATT and am now considering giving up unlimited for the 30gb plan.

    This is throttling for me in Syracuse, NY.

    (Cool advertisement in the pic, right?)

    Hit 7GB last month, not throttled. I've hit 5 to 6 GB every month for the past year or more - never been throttled. Touch wood..

    Im under the grandfathered unlimited data plan/texting plan as well - it has throttled up to 5gb out of 9999gb (granfathered plan) Im kinda royally pissed if att messed with my account setting an limit on the data speeds.

    I gotta wait till oct 8th till it resets back to normal.

    I get 0.5mb throttled on AT&T LTE.
    Still not that bad.

    I got throttled last month and pretty much every month I've gone over since they started throttling. Doesn't matter if there are 6 months in between using more than 5GB it still happens.

    Yes looks like AT&T still keeps the pings down. From doing some reading low pings are important. Maybe that's why it doesn't 'feel' too much different for me?
