Amid of pressure from the FTC, AT&T has increased the Data Throttling cap from 5GB to 22GB. Toda, States 2 nd largest carrier silently upgraded the policy.
Even, FCC slapped AT&T with a $100 million fine for misleading subscribers on its “unlimited” data plans in June. Here’s what AT&T said:
“We recently revised our practices such that Unlimited Data Plan smartphone customers can now use 22GB of high-speed data during a billing period before becoming subject to network management practices that might result in reduced data speeds and increased latency.
We will notify customers during each billing cycle when their data usage reaches 16.5GB (75% of 22GB) so they can adjust their usage to avoid network management practices.”
AT&T also says that it will notify customers if they go over 16.5GB of data, or 75% of the cap, within a billing cycle, so they’ll know to adjust their data usage if they want to avoid throttling.
