Hello, I've been having a problem for the last few months. I don't know if its been posted already, but as the title states, I've been having EXTREMELY slow download speeds on the T-Mobile network, and I'm not throttled.
I see people complaining about how their internet speed is about 150kB/s.
Well mine, on 3g, averages out to about 3-6kB/s.
I get faster speeds on EDGE, pulling in about 25-30kB/s.
Does anyone know why?
I didn't have this problem before, I used to pull in around 400-500kB normally. As of around summer, internets been slow as molasses. Unless its around 4:00 am. Then its moderately fast.
Any suggestions? I'm shown to be in 3G/4G coverage, and I certainly showed it before, now, its just frustrating.

Check to see if you're being throttled. If not, then it's probably congestion. Hard to tell without going through the usual tests.

I know for a fact I'm not, I'm on a new billing period, and I haven't even used about 1GB

Mine speed is about 600-800kb/s, but sometimes it goes down to tens,or ever 0. Check first whether other devices work well or not.. Or fash the radio.

Have you ever been throttled before? Are you over your limit or come close? That's WAY TOO severe to be congested. I'd call Customer Care and check with them. You might be able to tell by trying out the old wap.voicestream.com APN...
