This is the cue for all the douchebag attorney's out there, come get your money for the big class action lawsuit in which the people actually affected by it only receive pennies on the dollar and you take the majority of the settlement.

I fear you are right. Hopefully this is really just a cue for companies who have unlimited plans that they have to make good on the word unlimited. It's clear that a throttled data plan is usless and thusly the unlimited is truly limited and therefore a lie to call it unlimited. Bad business. Even worse though is that you cannot get a straight answer. Top 5% is bullshit. ATT store rep told me after 2gigs you get throttled. Two days ago a telephone support rep told me I will get throttled after 5gigs. The truth is there is no truth and we all are subject to the whims of big bullys, er ah... big businesses.

They should not be holding the unlimited users to a standard that is different from the tiered data users as far as throttling goes, but sadly that's what it sounds like they're doing. That's just bad business. They're just trying as hard as possible to get people off the unlimited plans and onto the tiered plans so they can make more money.
