It looks like T-Mobile may finally be getting around to the bandwidth throttling on high data users that they originally began talking about in April. Starting on October 16, when a user hits 5GB of data in a month the rest of the month will be plagued by lowered speeds when dealing with data-centric activities like web browsing.
This may seem a bit excessive to some, but according to the screen less than one percent of users will be affected by this change. T-Mobile says that this is "to ensure that all subscribers receive the best Web performance available," but my question is with such a low percentage of users being privy to this change, how much of an impact can it possibly make? I'm pretty sure that users aren't going to see a huge jump in speeds when this goes into effect.
