The company doing the suing is called Ameranth, a company that both Microsoft and Motorola have given strategic investments to.
My first month I was throttled, I got the “you are reaching 5%” text the day after the first time I ever used Netflix.
A week later I used Netflix again, and I was throttled the next day. (this was at 3.1GB) Next billing cycle I was back to normal but got my first warning at 3.7GB and throttled at 4.2GB
This last billing cycle was right around the same.
However, my sister – and we live together, have the exact same billing cycle. She this month got the “you are reaching 5%” text at 2.1GB – the day after steaming from HULU.com
That’s right, I got my first warning at 3.7GB and she got hers at 2.1GB – we live in the same house, and have the same account!
There is lots of talk about AT&T being aggressive to all Netflix, hulu, and slingbox users (check xda etc) wehre as if you don’t use the services, they will still throttle you, but not as fast.
I think its funny how i got a warning at 3.7gb and my sister at 2.1gb - all because of hulu
