T-Mobile Boosts Throttling Threshold to 30 GB of LTE

Posted by at 9:53 am on March 10, 2017

T-Mobile will allow customers to use more LTE data before throttling them.

Previously, T-Mobile said it would throttle the heaviest users after they surpass 28 GB of mobile data in a single billing period. T-Mobile today improved the threshold to 30 GB, which means people can use more data before potentially being hit with slower browsing speeds.

T-Mobile says customers who exceed the 30 GB threshold might see their top speeds dialed back only when the network is congested. T-Mobile anticipates this won’t impact too many users. The 30 GB threshold resets each month.

T-Mobile calls this practice prioritization and says it is primarily used as a way to manage network load.
