T-Mobile CEO John Legere isn't going to put up with your crap anymore!

It looks as though Verizon Wireless isn’t the only U.S. wireless carrier that is starting to crack down on users with unlimited data plans. T-Mobile will start throttling unlimited users this month, but instead of targeting “innocents” like Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile is going after those that it feels are up to nefarious activities.
 
According to internal documents obtained by TmoNews, T-Mobile will start targeting users that are heavily using their unlimited data plans for torrent/P2P downloads. The data throttling will begin on August 17.

An excerpt from the internal documents states:
 
Using the Service in connection with server devices or host computer applications, including continuous Web camera posts or broadcasts, automatic data feeds, automated machine-to-machine connections or peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing applications that are broadcast to multiple servers or recipients, “bots” or similar routines that could disrupt net user groups or email use by others or other applications that denigrate network capacity or functionality.
 
T-Mobile won’t just throttle your connection without prior notice; it will send notifications to the customers first to warn of their abusive data usage (and the penalties, which includes reduced data speeds). If the warning isn’t enough to scare customers straight, and the data abuses continue, speeds will be reduced until the billing cycle is over.
 
The only customers that will be affected by this policy change are those on older “Unlimited” plans or those on “Simple Choice” plans.
