Does Virgin Mobile throttle Home internet?

Just a question to those with more experience: Does VM throttle home internet after certain usage?

Long story: I am on the VM 50Mbit "unlimited internet" plan and have enjoyed it so far. The 50Mbit claim is valid, I can achieve 5-6MB/s download through newsgroup, which is what I expect.

Over the holidays, with extended family visiting, etc., we used a lot of internet (17 days into the current billing cycle, 600GB download so far) because we spent a lot of time watching netflix (among other things). Just in the last few days, I noticed that I am maxing out my download at about 1.2MB/s (~10Mbit/s).

hence my question: does VM throttle home internet?
