    I haven't found any discussion on this topic. How fast are your throttle speeds after 2.5 GB?

    They aren't throttled, but you will get a nasty phone call letting you know that if it happens again, they will disconnect your service... My wife got that call...

    I believe they have changed their throttling/data limit policy just recently, maybe with the change to allow LTE.

    Hmmm. Right now, I'm at 3GB and have yet to be throttled.

    I have the ST iphone so it's using Verizon towers. I suspect I have been throttled as my speeds have gone from a whopping .30 meg to .10 if that. It's gotten super slow and was never fast to begin with.

    I think I am going to get an AT&T sim and use the AT&T 3G if I end up moving.
