AT&T to throttle unlimited data plan users starting in October
Last year, AT&T introduced two new data plans for its smartphone customers: a $15 per month 200MB option, and a $25 per month 2GB plan. Both came into effect and made a lot of people (like myself) upset that you couldn't sign up and get unlimited data anymore. However, if you were lucky enough to have been with AT&T before the death of unlimited data, you could be grandfathered in to keeping it.
And up until now, those of you who were grandfathered have had no worries about AT&T's promise. But a new report just might strike fear into your souls. Apparently, AT&T is going to start throttling the speed of your data connection when you hit a certain, unknown amount of data.
I hate that unlimited data is going away, especially since we're in the time that people want to do everything while they're away from their desks. Streaming HD videos and music with a measly 200MB is something I cannot recommend from experience. Hopefully there will be better plans introduced in the future, because I'm sick of limiting my use of my device that I pay for every month.[Google+Reader” target=”_self”>9to5Mac]
