Android users are a data-hungry bunch: we download music, movies, games, and no small amount of regular web and other data. Of course, we pay the same as regular mobile Internet users, for the most part - a fact that's led both AT&T and Verizon to abandon their formerly unlimited data plans for more rigid tiers. But if you're lucky enough to have had an unlimited plan when the change went into effect, you're grandfathered in... much to the dismay of both company's accounting departments. For AT&T at least, it looks like they're finally taking steps to encourage users to change their "data hog" ways. A Wall Street Journal
writer got hit with a warning that he was in the top 5% of users on his iPhone, and his service would be intentionally slowed soon if he didn't change his ways.
