According to Consumer Reports and analytics firm Validas, nearly half of the people with unlimited AT&T data plans don't need it. In fact, those people (which make up 48 percent) use so little data that they should just switch to AT&T's low end 300MB plan. What?
Hey Carriers. We need to talk. You know how you said you were going to start throttling high data usage users in hopes to preserve bandwidth? That's bullshit, apparently. It's only because you want to get us onto tiered data plans so you can charge us overages. With hate, everyone.
We've known for a while that Verizon's tiered data pricing was coming soon, but now we've got a supposed date when you can kiss the unlimited data buffet goodbye: October 28th. But all's not lost for smartphone owners.
