Default When tmobile throttles they mean it

With an average of 1.2 mbps on my 5GB data plan and two days before cycle returns I used it up. Now its 0.02 mbps

That's some serious throttling.

1.2 Mbps? That's your daily normal speed? :/

1.2 Damn I would never except that. Something is wrong with your phone or your area had low T-Mobile coverage

If you're on 2G this sounds right. That being said even on 2G I can still stream music and make VOip calls so no big deal.

Are the calls still good quality?

Surprisingly EDGE is faster than EVDO (sprint 3g).

Yea I live right on the edge (no pun intended) of the good coverage and the bad. In good areas I have seen download speeds up as fast as 7.2Mbps

I can still use my phone and basic surf but video browsing is not happening, all good though this was my first month with it and I did make a few song downloads and watched a few movies. Now I know I need to do that mostly on my home service

Yeah the throttling is no joke. Especially in some areas. I remember back when I had the 5GB plan on my One S and went over one month from streaming too much Google Play Music, the speeds were so slow that I could barely download my email messages. Felt like a WiFi only device. It seemed even slower than when your phone just happens to enter a 2G coverage.

Hard to argue this. It's sad when T-Mobile's throttling speed is as fast as Virgin Mobile/Sprint's 3G speeds.

Yes unfortunately edge is sometimes on par or even better than vm or sprint 3g. That's one of the reasons I left VM. If network vision brings 3g to Verizon's speed level that would be great.

Stock unlocked AT&T Note 1. Just as the second from the top finished I received a text saying I'd hit 5 gigs so I did another. That's the top one.
