    throttling

    So, I used over 1 gig in 10 days on my line alone just to see if verizon does throttle. I did the speed test before, during, and after. I was averaging 1.1 Mbps down and .8 up. Was all good till the last 1/4 stretch when it started to slow down. Now I can't get above .04 Mbps down and .10 up. Same location, tested at different times. Overclocked to 1.250 on liquid 3.2. Even tried it on stock and vortex. Tried the different scripts to help with no success. Not knocking the mods that I tried because they do work fantastically. Just don't know how to get this to stop. Besides winning the lotto making a substantial donation and free me of it. Ha. Anyone else experience this?

    I've never downloaded that much in one month. I took everyone's word that when running Roms like Vortex, the throttling was eliminated.

    Test at the same time. Different times will yield different results depending on network traffic.

    One month, thanks to tethering and Xbox, I got 20 gigs and now my market apps go up by ~250 kilobytes, takes for ever!!!! I doubt it, but is there luck for me? I think I'm getting throttled from the tower, not my phone....

    From my research and lots of reading. They throttle by the account so yes through the tower. Which sucks. Its also from what I have read a very thin line of illegal.

    OK, they admitted to a 2 gig cap. But I've also got another line so I don't know if its 1gig per phone. Wouldn't surprise me now.

    Verizon can not throttle a line of service unless that line has met their cap. Since the cap is 2GB, and yes that's per line, they will be breaching their own contract if they start throttling you before that mark. But if you exceeded the 2GB cap the previous month, it is stated that they will throttle you the next month as well.
