Re: AT&T already throttles here
It's dynamic UP AND DOWN depending on people around you using their mobile devices on the same network/cell site/BTS/nodeB/etc.
Wireless technology is INHERENTLY SHARED.
Surrounding counties probably have LESS POPULATION DENSITY and loading factor.
Go to a rural area upgraded with HSPA+ 21 and see how one can get 11Mbps down. Or test @ 3am.
The reason wired doesn't is because wired has enough capacity on the last mile to take all the demand (and upgrades /w IP-DSLAM, DOCSIS 3.0+, FTTH/GPON, etc/.)

It is consistently when I use it heavily, then go back to normal use. I never have issues until a time when I did some heavier use. Rebooting the phone does no good, only time does. If I go to heavy use again, same thing. This does not happen when I travel, showing it's area-specific. They are using some traffic shaping measures, I am sure. I have observed this behavior on a few past ISPs for home, if I got throttled. Remember, I am from Canada.
A fool thinks they know everything.
A wise person knows enough to know they couldn't possibly know everything.
