After 5GB with an LTE plan you're throttled to, IMO, completely unusable speeds. You'll go from LTE speeds >10Mb down to like 100kb a second. It's almost completely unusable and totally messed up.

I`d rather be throttled than have to pay several hundred dollars worth of data bills or Pay $30 for 3GB instead of my $30 for unlimated!

So I dont know if this has been mentioned, if you have been throttled it can be very frustrating to have to deal with a 500kb download rate so I remembered when I had my skyrocket entering the wap.cingular apn stopped the throttle im at regular 4g speeds now went from 500 to at least 6,000kb per second. Try it out first time you activate it may take a while to acquire signal but youll get your speed back

I've got ATT unlimited data and just upped to a Note 2 right after they came out. Had a HTC Inspire during the rediculous throttling at 1GB. Was told the 4G phones get 5GB unthrottled but haven't even gotten close to the 5GBs. There's so many hotspots available I get off data as much as I can. Least there's a ton of hotspots around DFW.

Heck where I live I'm either home and WiFi or not all all when I'm out. My 3G I'd faster than WiFi in town.

I have crossed the 5gb soft cap once and they did not throttle me. When I was on my iphone 4 I was throttled once for going over the cap for a couple months in a row. I don't have anything to back this up with as to when they will throttle and when they won't but for me it has only been if I run over month after month

Ya I mentioned that but wouldnt you rather have 4g then be downloading wayyy under 1mb/s? The 4g on the wap.cingular apn has a speed of 6-8 mb/s I know its not lte but it's fast enough until your billing cycle ends

I've hit 150GB throttled half-way through my monthly billing cycle. (My passive-aggressive way of trying to annoy AT&T.) Hitting 300GB isn't that hard unthrottled...if you're constantly downloading.
