    Consider yourself lucky. I tried TMo for a month on 2 separate occasions and was throttled day 5.

    It doesn't say. I think it's supposedly per UDP line, but many have been nailed at a lower rate. We live in the country and this is our only Internet just like you, so there's not much else I can do. If they take it away, it'll cost me well over $200 more per month to continue using VZW and that's with their 100GB plan, which we'd go over around day 25 normally.

    How long ago did this happen, and how did you know you were throttled?

    My speed went to less than 1 Mbps, but my signal was still LTE. I've tried TMo twice in the past two years.

    Sigh.....I suppose we can survive on 400 gig or less between our two UDP's. :) Since getting into the drone business last year, my data usage has skyrocketed. It was pretty high before, but using my S7E to fly my drone, uploading HD videos & pictures to YouTube, Dropbox & Drive in an effort to grow my business, as well as my YouTube channel, requires copious amounts of data.
    Guess I'll have to start using my home WiFi to upload to the cloud moving forward.
