T-Mobile customers can now get throttled data speeds on a speed test
T-Mobile will have the changes fully up and running within 60 days. As part of the agreement with the FCC, T-Mobile customers who hit their monthly data cap will receive a text message that will contain a link to a speed test that will show a customer his throttled data speed. This way, he will know exactly how slow his data speed really is. In addition, customers who do hit their monthly data cap will receive a text telling them that speed tests might show full network speeds instead of the throttled speed that they are experiencing.
T-Mobile also agreed to make some changes to the information that appears on its website. The site will explain T-Mobile's new policies regarding speed tests and will include information on how to access accurate information regarding data speed.
