AT&T Starts Throttling Heavy iPhone Data Users on Unlimited Plans

(Image courtesy of

Earlier this year AT&T indicated that they'd begin to throttle customers in the top 5 percent of data users that are on unlimited plans. This won't affect anyone that is on a newer tiered pricing plan, but could be unwelcome for customers that stuck with AT&T because they were locked into unlimited service. However, if you don't use a lot of data then there's probably nothing you need to worry about. You'll know right away if you've used to much data because AT&T will send you a text that reads "Your data usage is among the top 5 percent of users. Data speeds for the rest of your current bill cycle may be reduced.” In AT&T's original announcement this plan would only effect jailbreakers using third party software through Cydia.
