I've only been using PN for a few months. I've been mostly running stock ROMs using PDANet for tethering. No problems even running stock ATT bloatware-filled Touchwiz. The throttling only starts at something like 300GB used for the month, and I never approached that anyway. I don't remember the exact number, but it's fairly large. That could affect some people, though. You can get higher speeds for more money. They nickel and dime you to death, like all monopolies. I don't drop them because there is no better option available. The only other option is ComCast. I ain't going there. I do not pay for cable TV. I will not.
