    Hmm good question since the throttle should be 5GB with the LTE plan... Hmm.

    Just curious...once throttled, what speeds are you able to get? Does it go under 1Mps?

    If you're currently on a non LTE plan interesting question. Once LTE you should be bumped to 5GB cap

    And all these people fighting tooth and nail to keep their 'unlimited' data plans, what a joke.

    Yes they do. A different approach compared to AT&T, but they throttle.

    Not on LTE, only on 3G. Their lease on the LTE spectrum from the FCC prohibits throttling as long as you 1) have unlimited data, and 2) pay for tethering if you using that feature. If you break those rules they can throttle you for "abusing service" otherwise they can't. They already paid a huge fine for this...

    I doubt anyone here knows. How often do people upgrade from an unlimited 3g service that has been throttled to LTE?

    Only if its your only device. It's actually cheaper if you have more than one and use minutes. My wife uses a lot of minutes for her business, so going to the shared plan will be a better deal for us.

    I doubt they'd say so otherwise.

    If you have unlimited data, and have just a single line, it makes absolutely no sense to go to a different plan. None.

    I upgraded from unlimited 3g to LTE when the GS3 came out. Up until about 6GBs I was still getting around 16mb/s. Closer to 7GBs I was throttled closer to 1-2 MB/s.

    My phone got really slow around 8pm too, and I'm in NJ. I thought I was throttled but maybe it's AT&T fkin' up. Unless you are on Verizon…. lol

    He probably looks at this months usage and looks at his speeds he is getting.

    Sweet.
    I can deal with 1-2mb. That edge speeds is what sucks when throttled on 3G plan.
    LTE is going to be great:D

    SoftBank Japan is capped at 7gb a month with speeds throttled to 128kbs once reached.
