    I average 10-12 gb per month and noticed that I was throttled to around 500 Kbps after 5 gb.

    This month at 3.5 gb, I was throttled.
    The work around still works but what a headache

    Agreed. Use wifi more or cut back on your usage.

    If you are on a 3G device then you get throttled at 3GB or shortly thereafter. On LTE then the limit should be 5GB. You should talk to AT&T if you are being throttled prematurely.

    The other work around still works: Buy a data plan that fits your usage. AT&T offers up to 50 GB a month.

    Maybe they average past months usage. You should call AT&T and ask them.

    If you aren't on LTE then you get throttled at 3 or 3.5 gb.

    Maybe the whole using over 10GB is an issue. Why so much? If work doesn't offer Wi-Fi, it's probably because your job position doesn't require you to be on the net. Hence, stop browsing the net and do your work. Harsh, but I don't know why you complain on this point.

    Maybe he likes to stream music while at work. My company has no wifi either. I stream radio all day and I use around 10 GB a month also. But I haven't been getting throttled until I'm at 5 GB.
