Sprint to throttle 'unfair' customers using more than 23GB of data per month
Sprint will end up getting slapped with 100mil fine by fcc.
How is this different from what Verizon proposed last year that got the attention of the FCC.
Sprint is making a public announcement while AT&T tried to cover it up.
umm...I was looking at a T mobile plan on their website last night....and they state they do the same thing right in the fine print...
I would assume it has to do with that fine print....they aren't really selling an "unlimited" plan, it's really 23GB of LTE speed and then something slower after that. VZW's plan were unlimited data, that later converted to LTE.
At least with TMo, I think it's literally something like 23GB of LTE, and then unlimited 2G or whatever.
With VZW, they WERE allowed to block tether on unlimited plans, because it was expressly excluded. But on their limited plans they could not do that.
It's very clear that none of the carriers are selling a replacement for home broadband, and ALL of them take steps, legally, to prevent that (unless your usage is low, i.e. little to no video).
Sprint isn't cutting people off. They are just slowing them down so you still have unlimited data. Just not at the speeds you were accustomed to.
I can stream as much as I want on TMo without fearing a slow down.
