This is a result of Apple’s new HD+ tablet’s ability to download data at broadband-like speeds (10Mbps+) and thus enabling bandwidth-intensive applications such as Netflix, iTunes movie rentals and even large app downloads themselves to quickly consume a 5GB or 10GB monthly data plan allotment in a matter of days.
The problem with this line of thinking is two-fold.
First, are people really that stupid? What did they expect? But more importantly: Apple caps mobile data downloads at 50MB, unless you’re on WiFi. So, unless I’m totally off track on this capping business, I have to ask myself how the hell can you even manage to approach that 5GB limit…in a few days?
