If I had tethering (for which I'd have to pay 5/month more) I'm certain that I would use all my data allowance every month.
But having paid for 1 GB/month, it is completely justifiable to USE 1 GB/month for whatever you want to use it for. In all fairness, excess data should be able to be rolled over, but that is not the case either, at least not on any plans that I have.

Would any other utility, e.g. power companies be allowed to charge for unused capacity?
