When I was looking at new carriers I went into one of their stores and asked them if they had any 'true' unlimited plans because of what I'd read about their throttling on the web -- and the rep in the Philly area said, "NOW we do". We've had a 5GB throttle on plans before - but rolled out new plans to compete better. AT&T also says nothing about their 3GB throttle on their website either. So I'm not surprised it's not on the T-Mobile site.
Here's one article from a reputable source proving my point. It moved from 10GB cap to 5GB cap (throttle point) back in 2010.
But I don't want to argue.
We're all just trying to find the best plans. And it's a moot point anyway now that TMobile is 'currently'/'today' offering non-throttled plans. It's all good.

According to my monthly bill I average over 8GB a month since January. Looking at T-mo site, there are now several data plans. I am grandfathered in so my plan never changes. In fact I am some what embarrassed to tell you how little I pay a month. Being a loyal customer has it's benefits.
Unlimited data, talk and text = $79.99 a month now.

I maintain that the only company that never had any throttles - ever - with their Unlimited Plan is Sprint. But they have lousy coverage so... ah well....
Finding the best carrier is indeed a 'hassle'.
Have a good night!

Ok, reading a bit more, you may be correct on throttling. Sux for new customers. My apologies.

"Unlimited" has a meaning in the dictionary. You can't 'doctor it' for your own uses.. Uggh..
Well T-Mobile made the right step now and to the future. TRUE 'unlimited'.
AT&T and Verizon get around the whole Unlimited thing now by simply offering NO new plans with Unlimited. They just charge you when you go over. And 'grandfathered - in' people on AT&T's ancient unlimited STILL get throttled at 3GB and have FaceTime over cellular disabled on the iPhone 5. Can you imagine?
Sounds like T-Mobile's taken VERY good care of their 'pre-2008' clients. That's what a company SHOULD do - for people who've decided to stay that long. That's GOOD business!

^Yup, been with them since 1999, before it was T-Mobile. Cingular I think was my original carrier. Been so long.
