This is starting to smell rotten............
starting? it's been rotten the whole time, and even longer in companies like canada with draconian rogers. and talk to comcast customers who have had this cap already and see how they like it.
At this point and in terms of caps, I actually trust Comcast a bit more than AT&T.
AND AT&T is having lost of issues with iPhone / Wireless caps in proving verifiable data as to how tey come up with their data usetotals for subscribers. I trust AT&T on the TV side but have none on the data side!
Apple couldn't even show the correct signal strength. I have an unlimited plan, but at the end of the month; the phone and what AT&T has said I used is fairly close; well within a few % points. In data communication you have headers. TCP is widely used and there is 20 bytes for every packet. IP also has a header, so there is another 20 bytes. That takes care of the L3 (IP) and L4 (TCP) header but doesn't include the L2 header. Data transfer across a network includes the headers, but is that what the phone is basing it off of?
