T-Mobile lowers data cap, will throttle speeds for those who continue to exceed

Lately it seems as though nearly every carrier has changed its data plans, and T-Mobile looks to be next. Effective Oct. 16, T-Mobile will be changing its data cap from 10MB to a 5GB, which is more in line with what other carriers offer.  Users who reach the 5GB cap will be notified via a free SMS message that they have reached their cap, and any continued data usage will be at a slower speed. They are saying that this change will only affect around 1 percent of their customers, meaning 99 percent of you will not notice a change. But for those who wish to monitor their data usage it can be done on my.t-mobile.com under the data use tab. [via TMoNews, whom we're betting is that 1 percent ;-) ]
