Guys verizon does not currently throttle LTE customers, they do throttle 3g.
as for the APN tricks...we are noticing on the Skyrocket forum that for many it is not working any more.
The best you can do is continue to call in and have the specific throttle call response center note your account of any issues you are experiencing while throttled (i.e. I was throttled for 8 days during my last billing cycle and no web pages would load, text messaging stopped working, the market gave no connection errors, mms was not working at all) so that they know this is doing more harm than simply limiting speeds.
That and file a SPECIFIC FCC complaint. So far FCC complaints have done nothing but initiate a contact from ATT that this is the new policy.
The major problem is that as the throttle policy continues, the top 5% will drop as people use less data. This and the fact that the call center uses the consumer calling in to complain as an opportunity to have them switch to a tiered plan, on which they will not be throttled.
The given response is intended by ATT to be
1. The throttle policy is intended to be a temporary solution to the evergrowing need for growing spectrum and the currently congested network.
2. For immediate relief one can use wifi when available and one does have the option of changing to a tiered plan, which is not throttled.
Is it BS, yes, but it is what it is.
I did the math and we are better off staying with ATT right this moment.
Our six lines of service would cost much much more on any other carrier. In my case I could actually switch to the 5 gb plan and use 3gb over and still pay less than at the competing carriers.
