ATT Limited Data Plan Tiers??

Why did it take ATT so long to limit their data plans??
1. Using caps does not increase the performance of their network in any way during peak times. They did not need to rush in using caps to save their network.
2. They wanted enough live data to know how much bandwidth the iphone uses in the real world. They probably see that 99% iphone users go over 200MB or more so they made a 200MB plan that will gaurantee overages. They probably see that people who use their phones multiple times a day mostly use over 2GB a month so they made the 2GB tier to gaurantee overages on them.

We need laws in the country to prevent usage based billing. All internet connections should be unlimited to protect consumers from these companies trying to steal from them.
