what is throttled
That's when your carrier reduces the speed of your data connection.
They typically might do this when you've exceeded your normal data cap for the month and will drop your data transfer rate to a lower speed--things will still work, just most slowly.
Your speeds should return to normal at your next billing cycle if that is indeed what is going on.
It's when the carrier severely limits your download speed. (Severely, like from a normal 30mbps down to 50kbs.) It's done by certain carriers who give you unlimited data when you exceed a certain limit for the month. Basically it''s limited data, because the throttled speed is virtually useless.
Edit: Scary types faster than I do.
