Default Whos getting throttled?!?!?

A few months ago we reported Virgin Mobile USA’s plans to begin throttling their customers back in October but that plan never came to fruition. Instead, Virgin Mobile delayed the inevitable throttling to sometime in 2012. Well, now the pay-as-you-go service provider is officially announcing their plans to introduce throttling (for real-sies this time), come March 23rd.
According to Virgin Mobile, only 3% of their customer base will be affected which doesn’t sound too bad at all. Reduced speeds of around 256Kbps of data will affect all individuals who use over 2.5GB of data in a month. These users will receive a friendly text message from VM, warning them of the sh*t storm to befall upon them as they wait 4+ minutes for to load on their web browsers (and another 7 minutes attempting to close the subsequent popup ad).
so they are throttiling anyone over 2.5gbs of data anyone got the nasty text yet?
CURRENT DEVICE(s) Verizon Galaxy S3
