They didn't have the foresight to upgrade/update their network to handle the large data load, and for a business, it's much better to make more money by charging your customer more for going over their data limit.

Also, I'm grandfathered in and I have the 5GB throttle down. I'm not sure how the OP managed to not get affected by their mandated limit. It actually should say it in the contract that they'll throttle you down. They discussed it in length with me when I was upgrading to the Note II because I questioned it.

Personally, I don't like having a limit hanging over my head before I'm throttled. The reason I chose unlimited from the very beginning is the convenience that I don't have to worry about going over some data limit and suffering consequences. And believe me, with all the things you can do with the Note II, it's not that hard to hit that limit, accidental or otherwise.

I understand that they did it for money and i also believe that unlimited means unlimited.
But you cant tell me that 300gb a month isnt crazy. I cant blame them for wanting to shut that down.

AT&T still throttles at 5GB. Maybe the OP has just gotten LTE in his area. At home I've had LTE for about 4 months, and I get throttled. At work we just got LTE about a month ago and I don't get throttled. I'm at 8GB currently. Not sure how it happens, unless there's something that needs to be updated with the tower?

Well a good advice for you would be to never upgrade your phone.
Verizon is killing unlimited data plans for upgraders.

My buddy has a OG note and uses over 20gb a month every month (no home internet). He never uses LTE though. He's under the impression that it's only LTE data that is capped, everything else is unlimited. He's never gotten a warning or anything.
