Wow, I had no idea. From www.evdoinfo.com
In the early days of 3G mobile broadband, most of the carriers offered "unlimited" service. Once mobile broadband use began to increase dramatically, all of the major carriers (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, Alltel) moved away from unlimited service plans and implemented a 5GB monthly allowance - the service isn't turned off after one uses 5GB in a month, but the carrier charges per-megabyte overage fees for use in excess of 5GB.
My plan was one of the original unlimited 3g plans and I have never upgraded or changed the plan so I guess I avoided being changed to the new style. I hope I can continue to slide unlimited without being changed.
