New report rips a hole into AT&T’s justification for throttling its ‘unlimited’ data users

[Jon Brodkin,Ars Technica] finds that AT&T’s usual excuse for why it’s throttling “unlimited” customers’ plans — namely, that it needs to slow down their data consumption to manage network congestion — doesn’t hold up because AT&T is throttling these customers at all hours and not just during peak traffic hours. “4G LTE customers with unlimited plans aren’t throttled until they reach 5GB of data,” Brodkin writes. “However, these customers are throttled for the remainder of the month at all times of the day and night regardless of whether the network is congested.” – Brad Reed,BGR
