3G - Is A Monthly Allotment of 2GB Enough?

Is 2GB of monthly allotment enough for myself? That's what I endeavored to find out tonight.  And why 2GB a month?  Well, that's what whacky ATT decided on recently by killing off their previous unlimited data plan.  And since ATT also has Android-based phones and since the other wireless providers are looking to follow ATT's lead, we all need to get a good idea of our own wireless data usage.

With my G1 acting as a Wi-Fi access point, I linked up my iPad and put both devices through a series of apps just to see how the G1 handled the load and how much data was downloanded and what the real world speed is.

Skype, Slingplayer, ABC video app, and Netflix.

I think this is worth sharing with my fellow Android users and fans because in the next few months, we are going to see a bunch of Android-based tablets on the market.  And I came away with some interesting conclusions.
