This month I've had my highest usage to date, a whopping 4.8gb. I sure hope this is not considered to be among the top 5%...or hope that others in my area are the 30gb a month data hogs bumping me out of the top 5%, lol.

Awww what! I use about 40-60 gigs a month downloading ROMs, streaming movies ,downloading repair manuals that are usually exceeding 3-4 gigs and the such I know I've been (abusing) the system but considering my monthly bill for 4 lines is around 350$ I really don't loose that much sleep at night about it...the term (throttling) has me puzzled tho is it to mean it will take twice as long to download a said manual or am I limited to a certain amount of data before I'm cut off ? And I noticed in the app Pimp My ROM there's a option to "uncap" 3g data speeds is there going to be or even a way to uncap 4g ? Bottom line I think I've finnaly had enough with them and will be looking into other carriers for other options !
