T-Mobile’s 3G Speed Reduction Cap

After browsing T-Mobile’s website for the G1 (Google Phone), I noticed a very small disclaimer that really caught my nerve.

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.

After that sentence, it has the usual (standard) conditions about them reserving the right to suspend or terminate your data plan or service, if you overuse their service or roam a lot. The fact that they limit your speed after 1GB of transfer irritates me and I want to see if I can get some official comment about that.

You can check out the small print here at T-Mobile’s G1 page.
