Re: We Won't Throttle, We'll Just Terminate
There is not enough infrastructure to support the kind of high end data usage the top 5% go through without reducing the bandwidth of the other 95%, regardless of carrier. Sprint, in particular, doesn't have the infrastructure to support their "unlimited" claim.
If you do as I do and, on any given day, have the potential to download over 20GB worth of video, there isn't a data provider out there that WON'T throttle you, land based ISP's included.
Try tethering your Sprint phone, download the top 10 movies of all time, and, based on statements, Sprint will send you a letter telling you to stop downloading movies or they will terminate the service. Seems simple and logical enough to me.
