Illustration for article titled Another One Bites the Dust: Virgin Mobile Will Soon Throttle Unlimited Data Users

It seems like all the carriers have banded together to kill the angel known as unlimited data. Even little 'ol Virgin Mobile has joined the murder party, informing their customers that as of March 23rd, Virgin Mobile will throttle users who pass the 2.5GB data threshold. That supposedly effects 3% of their customers. Et tu, Virgin? [Virgin Mobile via The Verge]

Ok, I'm a crazy phone user. I suck down data like it's water and I'm in the desert... BUT, I hardly ever go over 2GB of data. This is mainly because I am typically on wifi at home and work. Does anyone out there (that doesn't tether) go way over 2GB?

Course, this doesn't take into account future usage that no one knows about that might make a 2 or 5GB limit suck...
