Default AT&T Explains Changes to Throttling Procedures

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/01/atandt-announces-throttling-changes-now-kicks-in-at-3gb-or-5gb-fo/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/01/...-3gb-or-5gb-fo/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Anyone hoping for some truly unlimited "unlimited" plans is still out of luck, but AT&amp;T has announced some changes (or a clarification, as it puts it) to its throttling procedures today that will at least give you a bit more room to work with."</em></p><p><img height="300" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1330629724.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 196px; margin-right: 196px;" width="208" /></p><p>Basically, if you are on an unlimited plan with a 3G phone, you get full data up to 3GB, but then you get throttled down until the next billing cycle. If on a 4G, then you get 5GB to use before the throttling begins. This has no effect on the tiered data plans, only the unlimited ones.</p>
