    Verizon throttling data usage.

    According to an article on either Engadget or Droid-Life, Verizon is going to be throttling high usage data users. The top 5% of an area. I believe this is what they are currently doing to me 3g connection. I only used about 2.5 GB last month. Also the article says that not only will they throttle for the rest of the payment cycle but the next month will also be throttled. I'm on the unlimited data plan and I just flashed the new radio and it seems that I can't even get a proper measurement with the speetest app.
    Does anybody know how to test this for sure?

    You definitely would not be throttled for using only 2.5 gb

    I would think so either. I'm going to flash my old radio back on and see if it will make any difference.

    I have done everything I can think of.

    My network may be congested also.

    I live among a population of about 11,000 plus a few small communities surrounding the area in a 40 mile radius.

    Yeah but I was grandfathered into the unlimited plan.

    If they want to throttle my unlimited plan then they must have a very different definition of unlimited than I do.

    What does that even mean? Even if you are on the 2 gb plan you're not going to be throttled if you use more...you're going to be charged 10 bucks for another gig

    True. I think I'm gonna stick with the new radio for a couple of weeks. If my 3g speeds don't pick up by mid-day tomorrow I may give Verizon a call. Everybody at XDA seems to have better service and speeds with it.

    The new radio probably has something to do with it

    I think so too. I just don't to admit it. Lol. I do have a better signal though. 5 to 10 dbm better. And an extra bar in my house that I don't normally get. In the I may have to sacrifice better signal for a stronger 3g connection.
