Exclamation No need for this thread

Well if you are happy there is no need to make an insecure post lying about another carrier. Furthermore this is a forum for the exchange of ideas and CORRECT factual information. It is not a place for every single cellular customer who is "happy" to come and start troll threads lying about another carrier. People need to think before starting threads.

Look you lied. Okay? Don't rationalize it. If newbies read your post they are getting incorrect information. We all make mistakes. What responsible people do is admit their mistakes and correct them.

If you want people to say "nice things" maybe you shouldn't start your threads with a lie. It is not our responsibility to coddle you.

If you have some niche activities that you require >5GB a month consistently on a slow network then knock yourself out. Sprint sounds like a great network for you. For the rest of us who prefer using <5GB on arguably the fastest network around we go for at&t. I am not an at&t fanboy. at&t has it's issues. But the vast majority of people have no desire to use >5GB of data on their smartphone. Even the average home user isn't usually using that much data...

I do not like people to name things "unlimited" when they are not unlimited. But even with that issue at&t's LTE service is better for the vast majority of people (>95%). The other <5% can go to Sprint and download whatever it is they are downloading to their hearts content on Sprint's slow network.

I'm happy I'm on a carrier with limits. Any carrier with a usage cap inherently discriminates against heavy data users. To this I say THANK YOU! Please please please incentivize all of the network hoggers to move to another network! As to throttling, being on sprint is like being constantly throttled. If your normal state is equivilent to other carriers 'punishment' state, you don't really have a foot to stand on there.

1. most carriers cap at 4gb TO MY KNOWLEDGE
2. t-mobile has a 5gb limit i believe then they throttle or it might be 2gb of high-speed then throttle, don't remember
3. THE MAIN POINT OF MY THREAD -_-.... so like i said, to the internet thugs, i'm glad your internuts got bigger for trying to prove my post wrong and trolling

ATT LTE is throttled at 5Gigs

After 5 Gigs change your APN and you should still be good and unthrottled.

Point is ATT>Sprint .

Its just not possible yet to allow unlimited data and not have any major impact on the network.

Until Sprint starts throttling.. even if its 10 gigs, I bet dataspeed averages will double all over the country.

I know so many people who have Sprint and use it as internet for their homes etc.

Hell, I used to use it to torrent and used like 30gbs a month

No "butthurt." Just a quest for truth. I don't understand the point of getting on the internet and posting lies. Why bother? I come to this forum to learn correct facts. I don't like wading through lies just because someone is in love with their carrier.

If there has been a material change in the throttling policy at at&t please let me know. If you have no clue what the throttling policy is STFU. Misinformation doesn't do anyone any good.

Just for some comic relief, went to a sprint store and performed a few speed tests on their "3G" and "4G" networks.

You get worse than 100 kbps?! On ATT I get between 2000-5000.
