Our very small outfit at verbmill.net is seeing similar signs. For instance, 700MB+ downloaded by a single client when an individual podcast is a maximum of ~50MB. Checking my logs now to see if I can narrow down device/version number. All of our files are hosted on S3.

Ominous example.

I hope this user is on an unlimited plan :(

Wow, that is truly unfortunate. How long did it take for that 2GB to be chewed up?
