What a bummer for Sprint’s data-happy subscribers currently under the wireless carrier’s unlimited data plans. Beginning today, Sprint will start throttling, or slowing down, the connection speeds for the heaviest users of its unlimited data plans. Specifically, the fourth biggest wireless carrier in America will throttle subscribers who have breached 23 gigabytes in a month’s time. On average, mobile users usually consume about 3 gigabytes of data on a monthly basis.
T-Mobile is declaring war on those who consume more tethered data than they are supposed to. As seen on the wireless carrier’s newsroom page, John Legere, the president and chief executive officer of T-Mobile, has posted an open letter to subscribers of T-Mobile, and has expressed some unflattering words for a select group of customers who gobble up more than their fair share of tethered data.
