AT&T TO THROTTLE TOP DATA USERS
AT&T has stated they will begin to throttle the top 5% of data users down to 2G (whatever that is) speeds. Users will be notified via text message. The text message states "Your data usage is among the top 5 percent of users. Data speeds for the rest of your current bill cycle may be reduced.”
It’s unknown how much data you must consume to make it into the 5 percent affected by the throttling; however, AT&T has made it clear in the past that this move should only effect jailbreakers on unlimited plans who are using tethering hacks to get around subscribing to AT&T’s official tethering plan.
