I think that the reason this thread has blown up so badly is because people have focused on the 2GB and not the time that it took to get to 2GB. If you use 2-4GB in a month, then you aren't using as much as someone that hits 2GB in a week, obviously. Not clear on what system AT&T uses to monitor usage and make this determination on when and how to throttle. It may be that you and your friend have been very fortunate, or not in an over saturated market. I would bet that the 2GB throttle limit ends up hitting people in major metropolitan area like New York, LA, Chicago, etc... before it hits people in smaller cities and other areas.
