the throttling is to stop the people that are using their smartphones in a way that isn't compliant in the ways that a smartphone isn't to be used. I don't know about ATT but Verizon knows that people have rooted/jailbroken their devices and are using them in ways of violating their TOU's. The people who are in the top 2% are the people who have set up their phones to run everything through the phone using 50, 60 and more GB's a month. This isn't a penalty for people that are using netflix as advertised nor is it a penalty for people who are always using the data on the phone.
