Evolution plan acting throttled

I know Exede has been fine tuning the Evolution plan to be able to better detect flash and streaming media, but I'm wondering if their tinkering has now caused email and web to be blocked because as soon as I'm past my data allowance, it is exactly like having my speed throttled.

Email, except images, like in many emails today, should not be slowed, nor should the non media elements of a website. A media blocker such as UBlock Origin may help pages load faster for you. You might want to get it and see if it helps by blocking media elements that are slowed under Evolution.

Bev, I'm willing to try that but I'm skeptical that it will address whatever the real problem is because I always have Firefox set to not automatically load flash media as a data saving measure all month long.

After hitting my cap yesterday, the gmail inbox took 3 minutes to load and I couldn't get off the google search page.  I kept trying to click different search results, but it just kept spinning and never loading any pages.  That's why I think something is set too strict on Evolution because it's effectively throttling everything.

GargoyleLane, give it a try. Blocking the excess media from loading may help.
