Virgin Mobile Throttles Broadband at 2.5GB

Virgin Mobile made headlines last year when they offered unlimited mobile broadband when all other carriers had a 5GB limit.  Starting today (2/15/2011), Virgin is changing the limit from unlimited to 2.5GB/mo for $50/month.  This has happened to other carriers in the past as well.  They offer unlimited and it brings in the "data abusers" and guess what happens?   It would be like opening up an all you can eat buffet at the Biggest Loser Ranch.

When you signup with a no-contract type service, there is one huge drawback, the terms of service can change and all they have to do is give you 30 days warning.  One of the advantages of signing a 2 year contract - the carrier cannot change the terms on you next month...
