Sprint Set To Throttle Unlimited Data Hogs

I'm still trying to figure out who uses this much data on their phone? On average, how much do you guys use on your phone?

Starting Friday, the nation's fourth-largest wireless operator will begin "throttling," or slowing down, the connection speed for its heaviest unlimited-data customers, the company said. You really need to work to get in Sprint's sights, though. Customers won't see a slowdown until they hit 23 gigabytes in a month, or enough data to stream all five seasons of the HBO series "Game of Thrones." The average user consumes about 3GB of data per month.
