Are you a T-Mobile customer and worried that you're burning through your bucket of monthly mobile data?
Perhaps this will help you breathe a little easier. The carrier has raised its throttling limbo bar by a few inches, to 30GB per monthly billing, a cycle up from 28GB.
T-Mobile-focused website TMOnews reported that this unpublicized shift took place Wednesday. To be fair, this threshold isn't a hard cutoff but rather a priority queue. Essentially mobile data hogs who scarf down 30GB of video, music or what have you will have their additional requests for data "prioritized below other customers."
A T-Mobile spokesperson did respond to CNET about the policy. "As people use more data, we update the policy periodically to adjust for the top 3% of data users."
Of course any limit on an unlimited data plan sounds like a cap or at least a method for putting the brakes on certain subscribers.
