Boost Mobile has announced via its Facebook page that it will begin throttling the mobile broadband speeds of customers who exceed their monthly data limits. The change in policy goes into effect January 20. According to Boost, its Monthly Unlimited plans will offer 2.5GB of full-speed data, but will be throttled down to 256Kbps if/when users exceed that threshold. Customers will be alerted when they reach 85% of their monthly limit. Customers' data speeds will resume to normal at the beginning of the next billing period.
