I have a problem guys. I have had the Rom Xtrestolite 1.3.5a on my G900T with baseband BNG4. I have been able to tether my phone for over a year with no restrictions and never throttled on my unlimited plan with 5gb hotspot. I used to always check and my hotspot allotment never used to go up as my rooted phone on this rom had the tethering unblocked. However just this week I got a message that said I have reached 85% of my hotspot limit and that it will be slowed to 128kbps but that my phone will continue at high speed till beginning of my next cycle. I checked my usage and now my tethering plan had used up 7/7gb (I guess my hotspot plan had increased to 7gb over the course of the year, never knew since I had always used over 20gb of tethering unrestricted).
So now I am puzzled, did tmobile find a way to meter my tethering again even though I am on a rooted phone on a rom that had unrestricted tethering? Note that I still can tether unlimited but they have slowed it to 128kpbs... the funny thing is I can speed test on speedtest.com on my tether and it will show it at 25mpbs...but if I go on some websites its clearly 128kpbs as I tried a speed test html5 and it confirmed that it was 128kpbs...so it seems some websites like speedtest...and youtube still go fast, but most other streaming sites go slow on tether, so it is obviously being throttled. My question is, has tmobile implemented a new way to meter which made my 1 year old rom not be able to keep making unrestrictive? And if so does anyone know which newer rom is unrestricted and completely uses only my phone's internet not Hotspot Data allotment?
