AT&T and Verizon Getting Slower after Unlimited Plans

By Josh Centers
http://tidbits.com/article/17378

According to a report by OpenSignal, 4G LTE download speeds have gotten slower in the months since Verizon and AT&T have brought back unlimited data plans. Between OpenSignal’s February 2017 and August 2017 reports, AT&T’s average speed fell 6.8 percent while Verizon’s fell a whopping 11.7 percent. OpenSignal doesn’t indicate anything nefarious here, only that increased demand is slowing down those networks. Interestingly, Sprint and T-Mobile, which have offered unlimited data for years, both saw an increase in speeds: 8.6 percent for Sprint and 4.8 percent for T-Mobile.
