    What idiots don't get:

    Throttled speed = less data obtained in a certain amount of time = limited.

    When your speed is throttled, the amount of data you use is curbed.

    Unlimited Data = an infinite amount of data that can be obtained in an inmessureable amount of time.

    If that time is restrained to a limit (be it by speed or data amount), it therefor becomes a measurable variable and a determined amount within a specified time frame. Then it no longer constitutes itself as "unlimited".

    Also, if they are throttling unlimited data plans at 3gb, I can purchase a 3gb plan for $30 and claim that I have an unlimited data plan according to AT&T's data policy and agreement.

    There should be "no limits" to an unlimited agreement.

    I haven't been throttled and I'm close to 5 gb. I understand throttling if someone hits that mark in a few days, but at the end of a billing cycle is ridiculous.

    I don't think they should throttle at all if the data plan is labeled "unlimited".

    Yeah I bought MLB.tv with At Bat and now I've gone over 3GB since I don't get wifi in the area I use it the most. Jesus Christ my bill is $200 for my wife and son on a family plan. I've been with at&t for atleast 7-8 years back when I had a black and white screen Nokia LOL.
