Agreed, one week into my pay period and im already throttled. Youtube doesn't work. That's all I really noticed. There should be some kind of reimbursement for having this unlimited data plan that is really kind of limited. Pandora still works. Lets See how many gb's I can rack being throttled with 3 weeks left in my pay period.
The solution is to swtich to tiered data. They don't throttle you on tiered data.
You start with 2GB for $25, and if you go over that it's $10 per GB.
So you're welcome to use as much data as fast as you can and as much as you want to afford.
AT&T has made it clear that they don't want unlimited users to use a lot of data. If you want to stay on unlimited for whatever reason, then I'd be more selective about what I stream over 3G and make more effort to use wifi for data intensive applicaitons.
