I Guess It's Not a Common Question for "Regular Joes" To Ask
If you don't use a certain bit of knowledge often enough, you're likely to forget it. I took Calculus III once, even earning a decent grade, but I probably forgot at least half of what I learned.
I'm guessing that anyone who uses mobile data either gets the "Unlimited" option (VZW really has a 5GB cap), or doesn't bother.
I'm also guessing that most people realize that Pay-as-you-go data is generally a rip-off. Me, I don't bother with Internet access that isn't "unlimited*," or has caps and overage fees. Since I honestly have no idea how many KB or MB many websites are, nor can I be bothered to count the number of pages I visit even if I did know.
*-Every connection has a technical limit, even without artificial limitations. Even if you saturate a T1 24/7, you can only move a certain amount of data in a single month. I can accept this. I can't accept artificial limits or paying overage fees since it's hard to quantify usage. Plus consider the fact that data is often transferred even if you do nothing at all (e.g. automatic virus signature updates). Plus, don't get me started on bots and hacking, which uses bandwidth even if your firewall blocks the connection. It must first receive the connection (and thus use bandwidth) before it can be blocked. It's similar to a door-to-door salesman causing wear and tear on your porch before you turn him away.
