Browse API throttle

Looks like something changed on Browse API limits per second. Is any one aware of any change ? or what's the limit per second of API (Browse) calls ? o any other throttle condition ?
Since yesterday/today my app started to run into intermittent API calls limit reached while nothing changed by my side.

API Gateway throttles requests to your API using the token bucket algorithm, where a token counts for a request. Specifically, API Gateway examines the rate and a burst of request submissions against all APIs in your account, per Region. In the token bucket algorithm, a burst can allow pre-defined overrun of those limits, but other factors can also cause limits to be overrun in some cases.

Make sense, but as far as i'm seeing today, it happens by region, so it's impossible to set a throttle.. i'm current throttling in a rate that will do less api calls in a day than my account limit, but anyway some regions outputs the api call limit in some calls.. :(

No. Is not normal. :( a throttle is being applied different to what it was before.
