Is it still considered high def?

If it is, and I suspect it is, then what is the problem?
The amount of data needed to achieve high def on a 6.3 inch screen (and smaller) has to be considerably less than the amount of data needed to achieve high def on a monitor or television. So why would you need full speeds on both?

This makes no sence

As soon as last year, I left my Netflix account set on HD play back. And blew through my data allotment from VZW. Log back into my Netflix account via a PC, set play back quality to medium and no more problems blowing through my data allotment.
So if Netflix has been down grading play back on VZW & ATT for the last 5 years. How does it explain my experience?
Short answer, it could have been worse
Your experience is like many (unique in it's own way), you sought and selected a higher quality video stream to be delivered over the entire account. Most people however, leave the quality at AUTO which means Netflix selects, based on the technology a...

AT&T is unhappy about throttling? That is called IRONY
