T-Mobile to Limit "Unlimited" Data Usage on Andriod G1

The fine print:

“If your total data usage in any billing cycle is more than 1GB, your data throughput for the remainder of that cycle may be reduced to 50 kbps or less.”

So much for the “unlimited” access plan. Sure, you can still surf the web, download music, or watch YouTube videos as much as you want… but if you do it too much, they’ll cripple your phone so that for the rest of the month you have to do it really slowly.

Come on Google, are you gonna let T-Mobile get away with this shit? Spread this around and maybe T-Mobile will change their tune. This could be a deal-killer for many people, including me.
(Word up, Gurf)

UPDATE:
T-Mobile Removes 1GB 3G Data Cap for G1 Android Phone:

We removed the 1GB soft limit from our policy statement, and we are confident that T-Mobile G1 customers will enjoy the high speed of data access over our 3G network. The specific terms for our new data plans are still being reviewed and once they are final we will be certain to share this broadly with current customers and potential new customers.

Nice.

    I mean, I’m not all trying to convince you to join the iPhone cult, even though it’s a fucking amazing phone, but are they really going to give you an internet enabled phone and slap you with a bandwidth restriction? REALLY? I mean, I guess ATT does, but I’ve never encountered it… never even heard about it till I read that article…
