It was previously 20MB

Windows Phone 7 and 8 users can now download files up to 50MB, which is more than double the previous cap.

Microsoft had previously implemented a data cap of 20MB for over-the-air downloads of games and apps on a cellular connection. This applied to both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 users.

However, it looks like the company quietly increased that cap to 50MB. It's unclear when this happened exactly, but those with Windows Phone 7 or 8 can now download larger files over their cellular network.

Last month, Google said it wouldn't develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 because of a lack of demand. More specifically, it won't develop Gmail or Drive dedicated apps.

Only thing lamer than this stupid cap is the last paragraph.

We have folks with 6GB and 10-20GB data plans here in Canada. 50MB OTA cap is fine if you live in a place with Neanderthal data networks, but in the modern world that's just ridiculous.
