Which is absolutely fine if they say they're going to throttle you up front if you go over a certain amount. What I wouldn't consider fine is being sold 'unlimited' only to hit an invisible wall and my device becoming practically unusable. But that, I suppose, depends on how they did this. Hopefully they released several notifications to their customers alerting them to the change well ahead of time and gave strong indications of how much is too much. If they just sprung it on people and started cutting off their data mid-month, or are leaving it in a "we'll cut you off when we feel you've had enough" type of throttling.....I'd be pissed. Mind, I don't really care as I don't use Boost, and don't use anywhere near enough of my Unlimited data on T-Mobile for it to be a problem (rarely go over 2GB, honestly).
