Default Throttled...solved!!!!

Wow...just got hit with the Throttle. I've only used 6 gigs (had iphone before) this billing cycle and my brand new LTE Skyrocket (which was getting around 58mbps in Tyson's Corner) is now getting about 100kbps. This is some straight BS. My contract is only a week old, so thinking of returning this phone and switching. Whats the point of having unlimited if you can't use it.


Edit:

This is what has been working for me to "bypass" the throttle. It at least gets me HSPA+ speeds.

I'm using the Rocketeer ROM and I changed the APN and also forced the Network Mode to GSM/HSPA (Auto Mode)




The APN settings are:

Name: HSPA+ ATT
APN: Phone
APN Type: Internet

All other settings are default. I also am NOT on 2.3.6 and noticed when I updated the APN didn't work anymore, so I went back.

I also have the WAP Cingular built and have working MMS.

Name: ATT WAP
APN: wap.cingular
proxy: wireless.cingular.com
mms proxy: wireless.cingular.com
mms port: 80
mcc: 310
mnc: 410
apn type: mms

Did you use a different ROM?

Nope. Standard. Been streaming a lot of netflix..slingbox..etc. They sent me a text warning yesterday to watch my usage or I could have reduced speeds and then throttled me the next day. Didn't even give me a chance to change.

I know exactly what you mean about the throttling. I'm actually here in DC as well (Arlington) and use the Skyrocket and it ate up 500 MB!

Tried loading of all sitesTwitter and got a message. "Rate limit exceeded."

I'm on a 4 GB plan so watching the data usage really closely.

Have you tried switching to one of the lower grade signals? I've been having trouble doing that since it looks like the LTE radio is locked tight and can't be changed at all.

On LTE, you can use 2gb of data in 20 minutes.

Ugh that sucks man, they should really relax those rules for us LTE users. Why give customers all that bandwidth only to keep the same rules as their slow 3G network? Doesn't make much sense to me
