T-Mobile today said it will allow customers to use more LTE data before potentially throttling them. Previously, T-Mobile would slow the mobile internet speeds of the heaviest users after they surpassed 30 GB of mobile data in a single billing period. T-Mobile bumped that threshold to 32 GB effective immediately, which means T-Mobile subscribers can use more data before possibly being hit with slower mobile data speeds. T-Mobile says customers who exceed the 32 GB threshold might see their top speeds dialed back only when the network is congested. T-Mobile anticipates this won't impact too many users (the top 3%). The 32 GB threshold resets each month. T-Mobile calls this practice "network prioritization" and says it is primarily used as a way to manage network load.
