    Problem is it will effect anything using the internet source. Now how am I going to watch Ozark in 4k on my 77 inch OLED ?

    Because the test with Netflix is exactly the same as terms on new plans? Cool

    Maybe I can switch back to Verizon now that all the 4K on a 5 inch screen hipsters have been knocked down a notch!

    This is wonderful news!

    You realize knowledge and opinions are different right? We just have to wait and see, not you though because you know it to be true

    Potentially really dumb question: If someone is looking at video on a phone while connected to wifi, does the throttling still occur?

    Nope. Only applies to data on the cellular network.

    Now I regret staying on my tiered data plan... I could have switch the new UDP for the same price, but sometimes I use a large amount of data while tethering, so I thought it would be better stick with my large TDP with tons of bonus data. Now they're starting to gut my current plan, and the new Beyond Unlimited plans are quite a bit more expensive.
