"Fashionable though it may be to bash AT&T's 3G data network, its performance is, to an extent, a victim of its own success. Subscribers with the AT&T-only iPhone consume way more data than people whose phones cannot run a wide variety of apps, and as a result, AT&T now limits the amount of data iPhone owners can use each month."
And it appears this may be happening soon to Android users, as their data usage surpasses the data usage on 3G of iPhone users by 16%, 72% to 56% respectively. iPhone users tend to use Wi-Fi more than Android users, in no small part to limits placed on the apps by Apple and AT&T, so it's expected that other networks are going to place caps on their data plans. What are your thoughts, sooner rather than later?
