A first hand account of ATT's "throttling" on unlimited data plans
Timothy Stenovec has a detailed article in the Huffington Post, “I experienced the dreaded AT&T ‘throttling’ firsthand”, link here.
The writer does say that most Internet-related functions on his smartphone became useless after the slowdown.
I don’t use smart phone apps as much as others (for shopping, paying parking meters, or various apps offered by many news content providers), but I can see how this could make an independent contractor on a supposed “unlimited” plan unable to do his job.
FCC has recently sued AT&T over the practice.
