    500mb per month for ₹500 ($9)

    My mobile operator MTNL doesn't even know what throttling means.

    about 3gb a month and every day feels like you're being throttled on Sprint!

    Not really... Sprint is WAY slower then AT&T even when throttled here in the Bay Area. My friend's Sprint iPhone's can't even play Pandora without pausing for buffering every few seconds.

    thats what I was getting at...it just didn't come out right...GSM>>>>>>>>>greater the CDMA (3g data wise)

    so if you get throttled on VzN what do they bring you down to? from .6mbps to .1?

    just wondering?

    I'm using about 5GB but since I have an LTE device too I get 5GB and can swap between my iPhone 4S with my grandfathered unlimited plan. Once I get throttled I just change the APN settings on my Android and get back HSPA+ speeds, unfortunately no LTE speeds once throttled.

    Laughing my you know what off that iPhones can't change the APN settings!!! :D

    I use between 300MB-1.2GB and no not throttled, also on AT&T

    Ditched the unlimited plan in favor of the 5GB with WiFi hot spot plan

    Speeds are still very good

    .6 is actually not a bad speed. .6 =.60 which is little more than Half a Meg per second. So you can stream just fine.

    But VZW doesnt seem to be throttling speeds like att...................

    Since a meg is 1024kb then wouldn't 512kb be half of a meg?

    I don't think AT&T is throttling to half a meg.

    What are you talking about?

    We're using HSPA+ on the GSM (AT&T) which is a advanced version of 3G. CDMA (Sprint/Verizon) are still using the older 3G, which is slower already but if you're throttled, you're probably going be even slower.

    HSPA+ is a form of 3g, hence me saying GSM 3g is greater then CDMA 3g :rolleyes:

    VZW... Fiance and I both have iPhones. I only use ~500 MB/mo. and he consistently goes over 4 GB. Have not seen any indication of throttling.

    We just recently got wifi at work, so I use drastically less (we like to stream Pandora when it's just barely audible so as not to disturb patients). I was hovering right around 3GB per month (ATT). This billing cycle I am 7 days in at 46mb.
