    Default Does "HSPA: 10" mean throttled?

    Ok here is the situation:

    I switched to T-Mobile five days ago, I"ve already used 2.7 GB. Right now on my Nexus 4 it shows "H" with full bars, but I cannot do any data-intensive task, not even load an Instagram photo. I went settings-about-status and see "HSPA:10" for the first time. Am I being throttled?

    Run some speed tests and post the screen shots.

    Are you being throttled? Possibly. HSPA:10 is HSPA while HSPA+:15 is HSPA+. It varies depending on on where you are at the time, whether wifi is on or whether you are doing anything data intensive at the time you get it..... or whether you are being throttled.

    Ok, data speed seems to be back to normal, huh. It could have been some kind of power saving thing, I'll look more into it. Thanks.

    I've had T-Mobile since April 12 I've already used 8.2 GB of data. So far no throttling.

    I don't get throttled but data WILL go out for a few minutes at a time

    Yeah, I'm noticing this, though its not really a problem. I've used 6.2 GB in 12 days, coming off a SLOWER AT&T network where I was paying $95+ a month for a paltry 3GB a month.

    Here is one weird thing I observed in San Diego earlier this week....I get into town, do a few speed tests and see that I'm getting 9-12 mbps down in Little Italy. About what I expect on TMO H+ there. Later that night, on speedtest.net, I get exactly 1.59 mbps down in like 10 of 12 tests. I thought maybe I was being throttled then to "normal 3G", or it could be a software glitch.
