The app they would want is, of course

Netflix.

Because outside of netflix and tethering, it's pretty easy to color inside the 2GB cap lines.

Given Netflix's recent attempts to shoot itself in the head, foot, and mouth, they might just go for it, too.

Yes, Netflix is a major problem for the Internet as a whole. The Internet has many growing pains to accommodate the bandwidth hog that its streaming service requires. Most posts in this thread do not understand or address the issue that most content providers are not paying any costs of the bandwidth their apps are using on the Internet. Similar to software providers driving the demand for faster computers. Unfortunately, Moore's law does not apply to Internet access and bandwidth consumption.
I do not use Netflix streaming so I do not think it is fair to be charged for the bandwidth usage of those that do.
