If, and a big if, throttling was the right solution (which, I clearly feel it isn't), then it can't be simply done with an arbitrary number.

Someone who uses 3 GB/month during peak hours is congesting the network more than someone who uses 5 GB/month during non-peak hours. So, there really isn't any way to blanket cover this issue without negatively affecting customers.

As someone who owns stock in AT&T I want them to be successful and make a good, honest profit and I feel that long term profits can only come from providing a good network and good service, which leads to attracting more customers, and keep those customers. This is something I believe is short sited and will only leave a bad taste in peoples mouth.
