AT&T has announced that it will start “throttling” accounts once they reach their allotted amount of bandwidth per month. For people who use their smartphone regularly (most of us), even normal use could make you hit the limit. You don’t want to be on a throttled account-reports state that it can take two minutes to load a simple page, making me believe not much else can be accomplished.

For music fans, it’s far worse. If you have started streaming your music using a service such a Spotify, Billboard tells us that, on a regular plan, the most we could listen to is seven hours a day. And that is on the lowest quality. That’s seven hours of music while doing absolutely nothing else (no email, Twitter, videos, etc).

Will this affect any of you?
