After 1GB and your throttled? Does T-Mobile also throttle users on their $70 unlimited everything plan after a certain amount of data?

The $70 tmobile plan has no throttling whatsoever. You can go stream Netflix all day and you will never get throttled. It also comes with 2.5GB of tethering for free.

Shatter is technically wrong. If you read the fine print, they throttle at 9,735GB. Yeah, you read that right. Nine thousand, seven hundred thirty-five. An impossible number to reach in one month...so...yeah...pretty much unlimited.

That's 9.5TB if you got 40mbps for 1 month straight downloaded at that speed it would take you 23 days to hit your cap. If you managed to hit their 9.5TB cap they would probably be like wtf are you doing. The most I have ever used in one month was like 250GB (1080p movie and TV streaming mainly)
