Re: ATT throttles unlimited account when data usage is only 1.5Gb

Was wondering when throttling took effect because as of right now they're giving me way more than 3GB on my unlimited 3G plan. I'm halfway through my billing cycle and had about 300mb to go till I thought I was going to be throttled so I went ahead and proceeded to just get it over and downloaded a TV episode from the cloud on my itunes account. Well to my surprise the throttling never came. I thought that maybe the system hadn't caught up yet and waited 24 hours and thought for sure I'd be getting the usual text about "the top 5%" but it didn't happen. I'm currently at 8.5 GB and no throttling. Why? I'm sure my happiness will be short lived because I was contemplating moving to another network but for me ATT has great coverage and speeds where I live. I still have to ask why am I able to get more than the 3GB they announced?
LOL now that you've let the cat out of the bag, so to speak....watch someone here be a boy/girl scout and inform AT&T about it...
