Sorry, let me clairfy that a little better since it didnt make sense. I want the soft cap numbers is what i was trying to say. I dont want a made up top 5% number.
Theres nothing downloaded thats affecting the phone. Theres a delay from the time you open a webpage until the time you start to throttle. This little bit of a delay is whats wigging it out and making things time out. Heaven forbid if you fanboys ever find out something might actually be ATT's fault.
heaven forbid it could actually be a device error or a net access error. Given the phyiscal makeup of a data packet and the number of tranistion hopes that it can take to get to and from a destination site it can be a number of things tht can be casuing the problem, not just the thought that you are being throttled. do a a tracert with packet loss to the various locations you are trying to get to, would suggest that you utilize a website off the phone to get the information since utilizing another method will not send the data packet through the same route and hand offs that the phone uses. Especially if it occurs on both a wireless connection and the standard data connection
5% is what they are using, have to admit that is a poor choice though, most throttled carriers states in excess of 5GB all data traffic except for email will be stopped until the start of the next billing cycle, this appears to be a more equitable senario. Guess they thoght that was more fair, but it really should be a hard limit cap - 5Gb is equitable
