I have had outstanding service from ATT for years now, when they upgraded to LTE in my area I pulled anywhere from 10-40 down as measured by the speedtest app. Safari was sure snappy! :p I have had the 'Data pro 2GB' package for my wife and I for 4+ years. Two weeks ago, I changed to the 10GB share plan and noticed this week everything has been very slow. I opened up speedtest, and now I'm only getting 0.07 to 4 down. I have restarted, rebooted many times. Anyone else notice speed problems when changing to new plans?? I thought it was a tower problem, but my new results are consistent around town. :confused::confused: I changed so I could tether to my laptop, but these speeds make it unusable. Anyone else with similar experiences? The 2GB plan is gone now, and I fear a war trying to get it back if this is indeed the problem.

The mobile share plans aren't throttled. Call AT&T and ask them if they're having any network issues in your area.

Maybe try resetting network settings first. Also go to settings>general>about and see if carrier settings get updated.

As said above they would not throttle you on capped plans. They will just charge more if you go over.

Thanks for the insight, I have some follow up to do with ATT. I tried resetting network, no dice so far.

So, what does your performance have to do with OP's?


Most likely a network issue OP.... I find my service (top speed service that is) is hit and miss.

Because if the plan was throttled And he and I are on the same plan - those speeds would be impossible ,,,,,it's called an visual example

more likely when you changed plans something got messed up on AT&T's end. Go into an AT&T store get a new SIM card and tell them to re-partition it.
