Just checking e-mail and sports scores uses next to nothing. Most of these other uses people use their smartphones for now.
And what about playng that YouTube clip that you got sent, downloading a back up from a remote server, video meetings and remoting into the office. Also multiply that by 2-4 people and you can get maybe 20GB on the low end easy.
The average person watch 150 hours of TV a month. That's 5 hours a day so basically 90% of ones TV watching is Netflix? Does Netflix even have 130 hours of shit worth watching every month?
Or 2.5 hours a day over 2 people or 1.6 for 3 and so on.
Assuming your correct can you blame them? Cable companies should just lose revenue to be nice to you? Cable companies are assholes because they don't want you to have internet only and not TV? How dare they want o make money. I mean this is America our country wasn't founded on the concept that business should try to make profit. Businesses should exist to provide people with free shit. Making a profit is communist.
People are voting with their wallet that they want one thing and rather than change the model to fit that they are throwing a fit to stick with the old one.
