See, I would think the exact opposite. I would think that larger cities like New York, LA, Chicago, etc would not have the 2gb issue as they used to throttle the top 5% of users. I would imagine in larger cities there would be a lot more people using an absurd amount of data where the top 5% could be 10gb for example whereas the smaller areas (like where I am) the 5% would be an easier threshold since there are less people using the network in our area. I don't know how they obtain their 5% numbers (districts, markets, cities, states, etc) but I would assume if I use 2gb in a week in New York that I couldn't possibly be in the top 5% of people in the city doing so with that many people there with smartphones.
