Now, I do realize that this has been a major selling point for ATT and I would be sad to see it go but, if it means increasing data cap limits to five or ten gigs for unlimited users and lessen the overall congestion on the network, I'm all for it. The question is, does this feature really affect the network in such a huge way? I'm sure this isn't a feature that everyone uses on a regular or even on an extended basis, when they do.

They could limit this feature based on based on network congestion at specific times, when data traffic is heaviest or maybe it's just a matter of doing it differently. I'm not familiar with how ATT is able to offer this but, I'm inclined to believe that voice and data share the same frequency or something. What gives me this idea is,I've had an issue with Comcast in the past, where they tried to run one line for cable tv and internet. The problem with that was, it was straining the resource too much and i wasn't getting good tv signal or internet. The contractor ran two totally different lines and the problem was solved.
