Come on man click on link and read up , the proof came from Dan Hesses mouth lol
He admitted that 1% of customer base is throttled.

Update: It seems the Dow Jones report left a key word out: roaming. Dan Hesse squeezed the word in there, suggesting that Sprint will only consider it abuse when you go data-crazy on a network that isn’t actually theirs (Hesse cites “a guy in his house in rural Montana” as an example)

Ha! I knew it...they throttle Top 1% of Roaming Data users. Now stfu and sit down. Stupid media websites need to double check their **** first. This could have really hurt Sprint.

It's known that Sprint has an 300 mb allowance of roaming data before you are flagged. Everyone knows that...

I encourage them of throttling the top 1%. They are probably using more than 15 gigs of data anyways. I can barely manage to use 4gigs a month and that's because I have decent data speeds and I WiFi tether for some friends at school.

ATT & V never denied throttle after a point...same with T-mobile
Sprint on the other hand has commercials blasting on the tube claiming NO throttle which is a bold face lie

I recall the Evo 4G forums and all the bickering over sprint and throttling.

This may just be the beginning of the end. First throttling, then tiered data.
