In the last two weeks, data pricing changes from AT&T and the launch of Apple’s iPhone 4 have thrust metered broadband into the spotlight. As Stacey Higginbotham recently described at GigaOM, the iPhone’s new features (say, video chat) and high-profile apps (Netflix, e.g.) threatened put a heavy burden on AT&T’s data networks, prompting the company to rescind its unlimited, all-you-can-eat data plans.

While the move has created quite a hubub, it’s unlikely that AT&T is the last carrier to rethink how it prices mobile data use. This is a topic we’ve covered regularly here at GigaOM Pro, so we thought in light of recent events, it was worth collecting this coverage into one place.
