they are throttling existing Unlimited plans....not capped plans. some of the top 5% of users are using their phone as their primary form of internet...while most may use less than 2gb per month (even those on Unlimited plans) , some of these people are using that and even more per day...

think of torrents, streaming, downloads...the list goes on.

while the markup on data / texts is outrageous to begin with, it's highly unlikely that this is aimed to save money or make more .. rather it would be to reduce network congestion and insure that everyone recieves the same quality access to a network that they all pay for.
