  1. Heads up to T-Mobile customers that consume large amounts of bandwidth: the carrier is halving its soft cap. Starting tomorrow, T-Mobile will throttle data speeds for subscribers exceeding 5GB of usage per month, which is down from the previous 10GB limit. Customers who pass the 5GB threshold will receive a T-Mobile text message notifying them of the reduced speeds.

    What a crock I'd drop them like a hot potato if they were my carrier
     
  3. If it's only 1% then why bother capping it.. right?

    Tomorrow I will get my G2 update with tethering. They did this soft bandwidth cap for the preparation of the coming update. They secured themselves since if tethering is allowed for free then the 1% will grow dramatically.

    Trust me.. it all make sense... just connect the dots!
     
  4. I have them and refuse to drop them. They just gave me permission to have unlimited data with the first 5gb at full speed. Oh yeah, let me go to at&t and get a tiny 2gb and pay up my nose for overages. Go with verizon? They don't have a phone with a 4.3 inch screen that can do both windows mobile, android, and even ubuntu. Beats the crap out of the sprint evo!

    Heh here in the Uk we used to have unlimited (no really you could download like 50 gigs ) but people started putting there sim cards in dougles and torrenting, apparently thinking you can't be caught downloading on a mobile contract... FAIL
