Also not stating the AT&T is the best company or that the policies are the best when it comes to throttling, but there has to be at some point some kind of throttling. AT&T offers unlimited data, but at what point is too much. The more you use the more you cost the company, and eventually slow down the network for other customers. Some people state that there is no such this as an exaflood, but you have a admit that the data speeds do slow based on how many people are connected to a given network.
EX. Dsl or Cable internet runs slower when more people are on it for a given line.

So at some point data has to be throttled whether it is the entirety of the data itself or a certain type of data (ex. My DSL provider slows torrent downloads)
