    I'm at about 90 gigs. Hope this helps.

    Speedtest.net has an app to test your upload and download incase you want to check for yourself
    So you're saying that Verizon is throttling you despite their explicit wording that they do not "optimize" 4G devices?
    http://support.verizonwireless.com/information/data_disclosure.html

    Will I be affected by Network Optimization?
    Only a small percent of customers will be affected. To be affected, you must be:
    • A data customer on an unlimited data plan;
    • Have a 3G Verizon Wireless device (if you have a 4G LTE device you will not be impacted); and
    • Among the top 5% of data users in a given month.
    Then, you will only be affected:
    • When you are on the 3G network; and
    • When you are connected to a congested cell site.

    Thunderbolt and bionic no although they don't use half the data I do, right after doing the SQL editer unthrottle I got these speeds




    It does seem like I am being throttled again I have to run another test

    I just did another speed test I pulled down 7.4 up 3.1 so the SQL throttle hack earlier in this thread does work and is tested on the razr

    Throttling varies by circumstances and area tower usages, not strictly by user.

    I can push close to that just surfing 3G w/no media streaming at all.

    Unlimited was more costly than, I think it was, 5gigs capped when I got it a year ago.

    You seem to have a handle on this stuff. How is LTE throttled? By what standard & @ what level?

    I will have to assume that is the post you are referring to.

    What you stated is incorrect. Flat out. The only capped plan less than $30 was the $20 for 150MB that was a limited time offer. Otherwise there was the first double data deal for 4G phones that gave 4GB for $30.
