Something I don't understand

If they're throttling the top 5% of unlimited users...

...and people are being throttled for using around 2 GB of data...

...then if you're around that, why not just change your plan to a tiered one that you'd stay under anyways and avoid getting throttled?

It just seems to me that people overstate their need for data in most cases. And I'm not saying throttling like this is right, I'm just looking at it a little differently than most of the hip 'let's hate on AT&T' people are.

Some people just have too much free time and need somthing to do!
Your contract is only 2 years! After 2 years, att can switch you to 3gb for 30$.

AT&T doesn't force data plan switches from the unlimited $30 plan or the 200 MB / 2 GB / 4 GB data plans, even when you go to renew.
