Snippet: If You’re Still Whining About AT&T’s 3G Data Throttling… ☇

Shared on March 5, 2012

…You’re part of the problem, according to Dan Frommer:

AT&T has now been phasing out its unlimited 3G data service for almost two years. It has not always communicated this in the best way possible, but that’s what’s going on. And this is a one-way road. If you use more wireless data, you’re going to have to pay for it.

And I’m okay with that, because right now, you’re not paying for it, and you’re making the network suck more for all of us who have accepted the new reality. So you can either pay up, deal with slower speeds after exceeding the generous cap, or you can switch to Sprint, which is desperate to add more iPhone subscribers. But that has costs, too.

This reminds me a bit of the complaints about gas prices these days (world politics aside), yet those that are the most vocal are the ones buying F-150s in droves and aren’t even using them for heavy-duty work.
