    Hey all,
    Last weekend I went over my 4GB threshold and started to become throttled. My speed tests immediately registered 128kbps speeds. I was hoping it would be 512kbps like people were saying,...

    T-Mobile used to have the most honest coverage maps but unfortunately a few months back they took that same dive as well. The maps show usable "indoor" LTE coverage where you'd be lucky to get EDGE. ...

    Why do the carriers feel the need to do such drastic throttling when you hit your limit? You can barely do anything with 128 Kbps... Even Twitter would be nightmarish.

    I added this feature to my account last night, and I like it, but with one MAJOR drawback.

    The only thing I can think of is that TMobile has refarmed their PCS(1900) spectrum out for 3g/HSPA use, as most of their customers are on 3G/4G/LTE now.
