your reply is funny. I'm not sure if it's tongue in cheek or not, but to reply to your post; "Data Throttling" is basically, where your ISP (I.nternet S.ervice P.rovider, which would be your cell phone company, providing you with access to the internet or "web service" as some carriers might call it) "chokes" your ability to access the services on your cell phone. For instance, in this particular topic, most people are talking about how both AT&T and Verizon Wireless, are preventing people from accessing as much as they should be allowed to be, without any restrictions. Quite a few people pay for what's known as "unlimited" access where in theory, you as a user should be allowed to download as much information to your phone as you can. Some companies have this fine print where unlimited truly doesn't mean unlimited and that fine print is hidden in legal jargon that often makes a person's head explode. What's happening is, both companies claim that some users are hampering their respective networks because those users are "bandwidth hogs" or people who use an excessive amount of data, on a monthly basis. In order to supposedly make it fair for all of the users across the board to have reliable accessibility to the respective ISP's, the companies believe that they have to restrict those users who are exceeding normal usage, in their eyes. Once a user is restricted, they are losing out on the whole experience of having the unlimited service in the first place and instead, are not getting what they thought they should be. In some cases, unlimited truly means unlimited and even in those cases, the users are still not getting the full use of the service as promised. As a user, if you're paying for unlimited service and there is no fine print, you should be getting exactly that. If there is fine print and you weren't aware of it, well, you should be contacting the http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/consumer.shtm
FTC and making your complaint heard. Additionally, you should be doing the same if you are paying for true unlimited service, and aren't receiving it. This article http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/story/2012-02-24/att-data-sued-iphone/53236222/1
shows how a man recently sued AT&T successfully in small claims court because of it. I hope this helps. Again, if you still want more info, I'll be happy to help.
