Yesterday there were some allegations made about whether
Apple is intentionally throttling cellular data throughput on
iPhones and iPads via some files used for network provisioning.
The original source post has since been deleted, so I am linking
to the always-awesome Tmonews instead. The reality is that this is
simply not the case. […]
There’s no arbitrary capping of UE Category (User Equipment speed
category), throttling on-device, or anything else that would
prevent the device from attaching and taking full advantage of
whatever the network wants to handshake with. If you’re going to
read anything, just take that away with you, as the full
explanation gets technical fast. If you’re willing, however, let’s
walk through it.
