T-mobile throttles internet after 5GB. The writer of this article doesn't have "unlimited" everything.

What speed does it run at after throttling? It's still far superior to overage charges an order of magnitude over the base price.

I usually get around 5k/sec after throttling starts. Your speed will vary depending on the quality of the network. But obviously at speeds like this you can't do HD video streaming.

Thanks for the info. I just updated the blog post with this.

throttles is still much better than not having it or being over charged.

It's not that much better than dialup and certainly not within the unlimited use that your article suggested.

I guess its a matter of opinion. I prefer a connection that get slower rather than being overcharged for it, and I consider unlimited because I do not have to pay more for it.
