Sprint: Data Throttling Inbound? Bad News for the HTC EVO 4G?

When Sprint released the HTC EVO 4G it’s biggest claim to fame was that it offered super-fast 4G connectivity, however a future edition of the playbook could perhaps reveal data throttling is inbound.

Currently details are scarce, however a leaked image post in IntoMobile (here) clearly states that later this summer an edition of The Palybook will revealed data throttling.

It is hard to say exactly how noticeable this data throttle will be, perhaps they will put an overall speed cap on data connectivity, or perhaps they will put a cap on the amount of data usage available per month, let’s just hope these restrictions are not too noticeable for HTC EVO 4G owners.

As we hear more about their data throttling we will keep you posted, personally I think it is quite sneaky that they secure customers thanks to impressive claims over their data network, only to change this a few months later.

How do you feel about the rumored changes to Sprint’s data usage policy?

Update: We have since heard that this throttling is an option for business users, check out this link for more details, my apologies for any confusion caused.

why are yo posting this inflammatory crap blog?!?! It's already been shown over and over and sprint says they are NOT throttling the EVO 4G. IT's for people going over 5GB and businesses.


Y'all are sooo ignant! That image was taken from a business advertisement…it's describing an option for businesses who pay per data for their employees plans, and one or more employees is using a ridiculous amount of data, driving up the bill. The business can adjust their data usage using controls by sprint. This has nothing to with 4G! Why on earth would a company blatantly advertise something like that, if it were nefarious?
And this is what comes out on top of a Google News search for Sprint? I am scared for the future.
