By Wes Wilson

AUSTIN (KXAN) - A yearlong study of cell phone carriers found that almost every major U.S. cellular carrier throttles your data, and they do it much more often than ever previously reported. The U.S. companies also do it more often than companies in other parts of the world.

The study found carriers mainly throttle video streaming services and they play favorites. For example, AT&T throttled Netflix and YouTube

70% and 74% of the time respectively but never throttled Amazon Prime.
