T-Mobile Kills Overage Charges, Challenges Others to Follow
T-Mobile today announced that it will abolish the practice of charging overage fees beginning in May. The change will apply to all T-Mobile customers, no matter what plan they subscribe to. Overage fees are generally charged when a customer surpasses their monthly limit for voice minutes, messaging, or data use. Further, T-Mobile CEO John Legere challenged AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon to do the same thing. "Charging overage fees is a greedy, predatory practice that needs to go," said Legere. "Today I'm laying down a challenge to AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint to join T-Mobile in ending these outrageous overage penalties for all consumers – because it's the right thing to do." Legere kicked off a Change.org petition and is asking consumers to sign it in order to force change at T-Mobile's competitors.

Throttled Vs Capped.
I'm hearing a lot of talk about throttling. However, throttling doesn't cease the accessibility of data consumption. It may slow it down but doesn't terminate it.
For those that don't mind slower service, data will still be used and someone will end up paying. I would love to take a peek at the fine print of this new "Uncarrier" proposition of no overages. It sounds like tmobile is trying to parry the wording of price plans to make them seem more attractive yet only limiting what consumers use.
After going over 500MB, you cannot access the web.
Simple Choice $50 and up - throttled
After going over your data plan, connection slows down.
