    Engadget has an article about this. Data caps officially start today:

    Still no meter to show my usage. It says I should not worry about billing since I cannot see my meter. Really? Just like the sly way the cap was inserted in to the ToS by providing a link?

    Same for me. 250GB is really a lot of data you need to be doing some serious downloading/streaming or have a lot of people in your household to come near that. I think I read somewhere a 2 hour Netflix streamed movie is 1GB of data and my girlfriend watches a ton of Netflix but won't come anywhere near 250GB unless she watched about 8 movies a day every day for the whole month. Not to support the capping but this is something like ATT said is only going to affect >2% of their customer base and prevent people from running a business out of their home however I understand it is the principle of the matter.
