Well, unlimited was nice while it lasted.

I have two mobleys on one acct. this last month is the first time I think we really pushed the gig limits. wife was on vacation the last three weeks, so we've been streaming A LOT (mostly her). This morning, go to get online...nothing. Unplug it, plug it back in, stays connected for a few minutes...disconnects. Go to speed test, drastically reduced compared to my other mobley which is sitting right next to the other one. No problems steaming or connecting with that one, BTW.

Go to ATT to check stream saver setting. It's gone. Not even an option for the mobley that we've been using the **** out of. Check the other mobley, stream saver option is still there.

I think they've let us go well beyond the 22 gig limit for the last six months, but we pushed it to over 100 gigs this time and got permanently punished. Gonna tell the wife to go easy on the other mobley from now on.

I'm not sure I'd say that they throttled you yet. There could be some other issue. I have 2 days left on this billing cycle and am just a few Meg over 100G for the month (I work full time from the road). I've used the Mobley as my only internet adapter for the past 8 months on the road and have never (as far as I know) been throttled. 100G is about normal for me. While I wish it were less, it's not.

I only see slow downs at times when I know traffic is high where I am. That is usually around 8-9ish am then again between 6 and about 9:30 at night. It's nearly 6pm EST and I just ran a speed test. The results are 8.36 down and 12.5 up. That's about normal for me.

Normal speeds for me are 12-15 megs up and down. Today, it's 1-3. Never seen that before. AND the missing streamsaver option is a giveaway. The other mobley...not a problem. Same speed as usual. Streaming HD as normal.

I find it coincidental that for the first time ever, we hit 102 Gigs. But now are experiencing major slowdown. Oh, btw, that's 102 Gigs with 14 days left. :-)

Couple reasons I could think of why they haven't throttled you yet:

They can see that you're connecting to various cell sites, on the road. So you're using it as intended.

100ish gigs is acceptable usage for an entire month.

Or they just haven't throttled you yet. Hope that doesn't happen.

I'm using the mobley(s) in one location, all the time.
Maybe after this billing cycle, they'll open up the pipe again. we'll see.

Maybe there's something wrong with the mobley itself, not service related.

YIKES! I hope they do throttle users like that. It is not, never has been, unlimited. It's unlimited with 22GB of unlimited data and then subject to network optimization or something. I have used 90GB in a month without issue and I am still using it without issue but I am hopeful that someone will make sure that super abusers get throttled HARD.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Calm down, bill. It's the one and only time that we've used that much. We had family over and like I said, my wife was on vacation. It was one month. It's not a habit. So put your spurs away.

That was 100GB used in 16 days, not a month.

Please don't tell me what to do. I don't appreciate it. My thoughts and opinions are my own and I share them freely whether folks like it or not.

You're effectively telling others what to do with how much they use the Mobley, but you're somehow offended by my innocuous, tongue-in-cheek retort? You do see the hypocrisy, don't you? Oh, brother. [emoticon]

Don't worry. I will say no more.
