T-Mobile has announced that it is getting ready to begin throttling users on unlimited LTE data plans who are using the data allowance for things outside the terms and conditions imposed on the plan. According to T-Mobile, users that are using their data for torrents or p2p will begin being throttled on August 17.

The company wrote, "T-mobile has identified customers who are heavy data users and are engaged in peer-to-peer file sharing, and tethering outside of T-Mobile's Terms and Conditions (T&C). This results in a negative data network experience for T-Mobile customers. Beginning August 17, T-Mobile will begin to address customers who are conducting activities outside of T-Mobile's T&Cs."

 

The throttling will only apply to those on the old $70 unlimited or new $80 Simple Choice plans. Those who violate will see their speeds reduced until the next billing cycle.
