I've used my DD-WRT flashed WRT-54GL for years to log/review usage. I'm typically around 260Gb/month at a minimum. I've scoffed at the "Unlimited"/5Gb wireless plans from the beginning.
I've been upset with my wireless carrier since they tricked me (my fault, I know) into upgrading to the unlimited texting plan which charged me $0.25/Mb data rates instead of online minutes for data. It was a $250 blunder.
I also love the way the wireless carriers are forcing people to get wireless data plans for phones with touch screens, just $10 for 25 Mb, yes that's an "M". Just enough to get you to create huge overages. I estimated that would allow my daughter with her touchscreen phone to login to facebook exactly 5 times a month, without viewing any pages other than her home page. I threatened to throw away her phone if she actually used it for data.
I'm almost longing for the days of the Ma-Bell monopoly and dialup networking...
