T-Mobile may offer unlimited data, but even though you can get all the data that you want, its uses can be limited. If you use your mobile data connection for torrenting or other peer-to-peer file sharing, you may find yourself throttled with no one but yourself to blame.
T-mobile has identified customers who are heavy data users and are engaged in peer-to-peer file sharing, and tethering outside of T-Mobile's Terms and Conditions (T&C). This results in a negative data network experience for T-Mobile customers. Beginning August 17, T-Mobile will begin to address customers who are conducting activities outside of T-Mobile's T&CsT-Mobile
Some people may cry foul at T-Mobile for throttling its customers based on usage scenarios, and while it’s not exactly ideal, it’s technically fair. You signed a contract and you’ll need to abide by it, and P2P activity is not allowed by T-Mobile. Unfortunately, a lot of P2P file sharing is perfectly legal and encouraged by media creators.
This new rule applies to those on the old $70 unlimited plan and new the $80 Simple Choice plan. If I were you, I wouldn’t start torrenting on T-Mobile’s mobile network, because it might just land you in some hot water. It’s really too bad that P2P sharing has such a dirty reputation since it’s a great way to quickly and easily share files in a perfectly legal manner.
