    Default Change.org petition-is this real?

    I tend to think that between a few online tech sites that I read regularly, I'm fairly up to date on topics like the link below...

    http://www.change.org/petitions/at-t...n-the-internet

    Is this petition founded with facts? Are vzw att and sprint throttling certain websites delivered to our devices?

    I feel like this topic has been mentioned on the net but you'd think it would be all over these forums if it was true

    Contracts are a good and a bad thing.
    Good because it hides the upfront costs from customers that are typically too dumb to understand the new model will actually save them money. The subsidy I'm sure has saved tons of sales from being lost

    It's a bad thing because if we want to leave a carrier we shouldn't have to incur such harsh penalties

    Sprint does not throttle at all. I've had sprint for three years and have never had any of my services throttled. Att and Verizon are a different story though.

    Verizon does have unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE, for those grandfathered
