Things may still be going very well for T-Mobile but the American carrier does have some problems too, with the company's CEO forced today to deny accusations that the network throttles high data networks. A Reddit post this week was filled with T-Mobile customers on the Unlimited 4G Data Plan complaining about what they think is data throttling.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere denied the situation and said he would look into it and solve what issue the customers have. The users in question said that their data was stopped whenever they reached 20GB, despite the fact they pay for a so-called unlimited plan. T-Mobile has previously said that it does not cap data speeds for its unlimited customers.

T-Mobile employees joined the Reddit discussion and claimed while no active throttling is used, the company does prioritize users based on how much data they have used.
