AT&T throttling users at 2GB?

http://j.mp/w3VTMZ  (Android Guys)

   "A post on Wall Street Journal from today advises that their own Willa
    Plank received the letter from AT&T indicating they were in the top 5$
    of users.  After averaging around 1.76GB of data in 2011, Plank
    exceeded 2.05GB with about one week to go in the billing cycle.
    Apparently this means that they are using approximately 12X as much
    data as the average user.  As if the letter notification wasn't
    enough, AT&T also followed up with a text message advising that Plank
    connects to as much Wi-Fi as possible in order to avoid slowed data."
