Its 5GB, trust me on that one.  Former roommate worked for Verizon 
Wireless as a high level blackberry tech in the local call center - they 
quietly added the cap to all plans over the past year after adding all 
these little disclaimers to sales docs, websites, etc.

She came home and warned us one day that our EVDO modem on the business 
account was now capped, even though it was originally 'unlimited'. 
IIRC, they'll start billing you per megabyte or gigabyte after 5GB. 
I've not had an oppertunity to test this, so I'm only going by what I 
was told.

It does, 5GB as well, but I believe they throttle you down majorly once 
you hit the cap.  I'll keep my eyes on the fine print next time I see a 
Clear commercial here.
