Data throttling is a pain. Especially when you have unlimited data and want the freedom to do whatever you’d like to do with your devices. However, that’s not the case anymore with unlimited plans, except for those on T-Mobile. Now there are data caps that will activate a slower network experience once met.
AT&T is one of the culprits that will slow your internet speeds to a crawl if you pass a certain threshold. Today, AT&T has announced that they have increased the data cap before getting throttled. You will be able to take advantage of 22GB of un-throttled, 4G LTE speeds before they slow you down. However, this is only for customers that live in “congested areas”.
AT&T doesn’t let anyone know what constitutes a congested area, however, for those still grandfathered into the Unlimited Data plans, it doesn’t really matter. Previously those with unlimited plans, were throttled after 5GB of data, meaning that AT&T has more than quadrupled the amount of data you can use before getting throttled.
This is great news for everyone on AT&T and still rocking those old-school Unlimited Plans. Are you one of the lucky few? Let us know what your average data usage per month is, just to see who uses the most.
