Just curious if anyone has actually been throttled by AT&T yet?

Just curious what happens, I'm having weird data issues today

I think the AT&T network as a whole is throttled, I remember testing speeds last year at my house and gettin 5MB down all the time. Now I only get 5 down in DE and in VA. At some point the network must have light usage. At those times I would expect to see higher speeds.

I am about 4GB for the month and my speeds are still normal...what use age are you at?

Last 2 days I've been seeing edge appear where I usually have 2-3 bars of 3G, I thought it was something to do with my 4S.

Last day or so my data has been super slow. No warning, no announcement.

I'm over 5 gb data with 11 days left on my billing cycle and I'm still seeing average speeds of 4-5 Mbps with highs of 9.5. So no throttling here. I'm in Nassau county long island by the way.
