    So, I was reading the ATT article on BGR about their moves to improve service/coverage and is basically says a power user is someone who uses more than 5GB or bandwidth per month.

    How much surfing would one have to do to take up this much bandwidth? How many of us on this forum are power users?

    My biggest month was 3.6 G, but I'm not on ATT. Guess I'm not a power user. I'll try harder, promise.I got rid of my home computer, so ALL of my evening and weekend surfing is done on my phone.

    Power users almost always tether heavily. I went thru 500mbs in 2 hours tethering once. But alas I don't tether heavily allot.

    I wouldnt consider "Power user" status based on byte usage alone... I mean... Some things dont take much data to run....

    Well without tethering I used almost 2gig in less than a months billing. Just You tube, stocks, emails, video and picture sending. I will watch for the first full month of use without tether and see where I am at. Not allowed to use work computers for internet or Emails so everything is going on the DROID account until they lighten up at work.
    If it says unlimited, the court of law feels that is what is says...UNlimited. So next contract it may be worded differently, like potentially limited, or were watching you limited or hit 5GB and we are taking your first born limited. Time will tell.
