|Data Caps vs Data Throttling|
Some carriers like AT&T & Verizon may not throttle your data but will begin to charging you extra for exceeding data plans as well which we call data caps. Carriers like T-Mobile and Sprint who offer unlimited data plans will limit or (throttle) your speeds if you exceed their monthly thresholds. We think there is a need for carriers to provide better applications about measuring mobile phone data usage.
Mobile video is congesting networks & continues to be 66% of network traffic volume. Mobile video download traffic is already exceeding forecasts from 2010 and carrier networks are struggling to keep up with the growing data demand. This is another reason why we think data caps are also killing the mobile phone application ecosystem.
