See, this is what blows my mind. People say crap like this.
I made the conscious decision to move from Verizon to AT&T to get the iPhone before Verizon had it. I signed the contract that agreed to UNLIMITED DATA at the speeds that they advertised in print, tv, radio, etc. If AT&T is now taking the stance of "We promised unlimited data, but not how fast", then that is misleading and should call for backlash or even a class action lawsuit.
And now you will come back with the statement "why don't you just take your business elsewhere. You don't have to stay with AT&T!". Well, technically I do. See, I signed an agreement for the services I am paying for. If and when I get throttled back, do you think that good ole AT&T will let me leave with no backlash or even legal teams involved. Umm, no.
Don't get pissy and pull the whole "convert to the tiered plan like I had to get because I didn't jump ship early enough" bull crap. We aren't whining......we are sticking to our end of the contract as AT&T would expect us to. So, don't you think they should?
Also, don't pull that bull crap line of it's not in the contract to give 3g speeds or better. You're an idiot to think that they would lay the pipe to you like this when you signed up. It's called bad business ethics. They should pony up, pay for better service/data coverage and delivery if they are going to put it in their adds to get you in the door. Plain and simple.
