    At least that's a really big player as opposed to the other companies.

    Should have made full-linux phone with sense of ubuntu all over the place.

    Instead we get Ubundroid, powered by controversal *peace* and sarcastic *unity*.

    This pinky-stinky big-player recently tried to limit DSL flatrate to several GiB per month and start throttling the lines to 386 kilobit... Except own video services.
    Now, after public protest of 10K crowd they proposed a throttling to 2 Mbit (from usual 16 or 100).

    Its no less crapsodic than Verizon and co.

    This is unusual? I wish I only got shaped to 386kbps. It's 256kbps here, although it used to be 64kbps so I guess things have "improved."

    Has there been any statement from Ubuntu about whether their Ubuntu Mobile platform will have a convergence function similar to what was planned for Ubuntu for Android?
    This is something that I really want to see any company put out.

    It's also good to see that Ubuntu is getting some traction in the carrier game, I just wish that they had less competition from that DoA platform Tizen, I don't even think the developers understand what their platform is targeting.

    It is in most of the EU. DSL is not throttled, if you bought 20M, you're getting at least X % no matter how much you use. The percentage depends on local laws, here it's around 70% (to account for bad lines etc, but still keep reins on speed avertising).

    What does this mean? Please explain.

    Are people not getting the speeds they pay for? If so, then why would there be public protests because of one crappy ISP?

    It's volume based:
    For the first x GiB of downloads in the month you get full speed. After that your download speed gets throttled to a very low percentage of the full speed until next month.

    The reason for this are basically 2 simple ideas:
    1. Provide a more expensive contract with unlimited full speed (-> customer pays more)
    2. Offer a way for platforms/websites/content provider to pay the ISP to be excluded from the measured download volume (-> content provider pays the ISP)
    Which comes down to the simple idea:
    Get more money out of the same service we offer since years

    The reason why there's a protest is because the few ISPs we have had the same plan as the Telekom.
