Switched from a 2-wire to a 1-wire connection

So, I've been having a great deal of trouble with line 2 of my bonded pair.  Five or six techs later, they switched me to a single wire.  I have been paying for 50 MGBS service and now discover that many of my devices don't have the proper wireless card to get 50 MGBS.  So now I have a 2.4 ghz and a

The Illusive Throttle Proxy

Hello My Fellow ATTers, It's a new year and change is in our frequency wave fettered air! Or is it? One wireless giant (I won't name the gorilla in the room) is still throttling "unlimited" data legacy customers. Why? Customers are dying to know!  Schrödinger's cat is out of the bag and it turns out

Unlimited Data

I have a plan with the old unlimited data feature.

Getting throttled when not congested, no matter what

Running the Unlimited Plus plan, we get throttled every single month right after hitting 22GB. We live in an area of about 100 people, near a busy highway, with maybe 25% of those people having AT&T. Before 22GB our data is great, 12-15Mbps all day long. The second we hit 22GB of data, we drop to 1-

Unlimited data plan overage: HSPA+ turned off, only LTE worked

Recently I received a text that I was at 75% of my 5GB "limit" (although I have an grandfathered unlimited data plan) and after I hit the "limit", the 4G HSPA+ on my phone would no longer work, and I had to turn on LTE.

Why throttle?

So this is a question that can be speculated on by non-ATT employees/authorities on the topic and that is OK, but I hope to hear an 'official' answer from an ATT person....All carriers want to 'squelch' your data speed after you reach a certain threshold of use month to month....this imo, negates th
