Re: Upgraded just under the wire then "I disagree with the last part - streaming users should not probably pay more. The carriers have sold people on the promise of 3g/4g being explicitly useful for such things, and it is. Artificially limiting the freedom to use your device/connection "as intended" is just crap."
It's not your network, it's theirs. You're free to go someplace else. Businesses are in the business to make money, not lose it.
"Personally, I've tested my usage with streaming audio at work daily (though not quite ALL day). A month ends up being right over 2GB."
Bring a radio to work. Phone usage = 0 then and no worry of a cap.
Get used to it, every company that provides a service to the public is pushed to the limit due to demand. If you had a company, you'd do the same thing. Wait till govt takes over healthcare if you want to see shortages.
