Default T-Mobile and Throttling?

I'm debating switching from AT&T to TMo solely because I hate monitoring my data to stay below 2GB and I know that TMo wouldn't charge me for going over the cap and I just get throttled.

My cousin has T Mobile but he claims that he's never been throttled even if he goes over the cap. But I've read that others also on TMo get throttle as soon as they got their caps.

Is it random or by chance whether people get throttled or not?

You will get throttled going over your limit. I'm going unlimited the wife loves tmo and has been happy with the service wherever she goes. Today is the day.

She's not unlimited but I am and I been burning through on LTE only since Saturday with zero slowdowns. If I get throttled I'll let you know but nobody I know has had that problem.

No man, I was telling you my girlfriend is on an unlimited plan and she gets throttled almost every month.
