Virgin Mobile to Start Throttling March 23
Jan 18, 2012, 5:32 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Virgin Mobile USA today indicated that it is going to start throttling customers who exceed 2.5GB of data in a given monthly billing cycle starting March 23. Virgin won't charge overage fees, but users who go over the limit will see data speeds slowed down to 256Kbps or less for the remainder of the billing cycle. Virgin says that fewer than 3% of its customers will be affected by this new policy. The throttling plan was first announced in July 2011 with a target launch date of October 2011. Virgin later decided to delay its throttling plan until 2012. The company said, "this is the best way for Virgin Mobile to maintain the best network experience as data usage explodes."
