Yes, it does. It says nothing about throttling if you use too much.

I honestly don't know what the hell that means.
You can end it by paying the ETF fee and AT&T can end it at any time they want.
Irrelevant. The ability to end a contract does not mean AT&T gets to alter the terms after you sign it.
3) If a carrier forces a change that is not specified in the contract the contact is nullified. I've seen this before when companies were being bought out. This allows the customer to leave the carrier and keep the device, if they so choose, without a fear of penalty but it does not mean the carrier has to pay them anything for dissolving the contract as its for the carrier against the consumer who is getting several hundred dollars for free up front, in most cases.
I've seen that as well. In this case, AT&T has allowed people who bought unlimited data plans to be grandfathered in...presumably
because they had to. But the data is not unlimited. Downloads slow to near zero after one exceeds their cap. You are therefore paying for an unlimited data plan with a data limit.
