3G and HSPDA+ is pretty darn fast already, though we know LTE puts it to shame. But let's be realistic, with the average data plan being 3072 megabytes (for a feasible monthly plan, since LTE Unlimited plans are either going to not be grandfathered or become nearly nonexistent for the average user), WHAT is the point exactly of LTE Data? Ok, so I can download at 8 megabytes per second. That means I can drain my 3072 monthly megabyte data plan watching HD Netflix in a matter of 6 minutes. Or I can stream in total about 425 songs for a month, assuming no other data usage at all. Sure, maybe Netflix doesn't use that much data yet necessarily, but higher resolution devices and increases in streaming quality will only draw more data. Assume Netflix uses only 2 megabytes per second instead of 8, that means still a measly 24 minutes a month! Wouldn't you rather see lower data prices and higher data packages rather than faster network speeds? I don't need to download my 7 megabyte song in one second. I'd rather be able to download or stream 2000 songs and have them each take 5-10 seconds to stream or download. Or be able to watch Netflix for an hour on my network, rather than for a measly few minutes. EDIT: I think people are missing my point. So if we can have faster download speeds, thus more bandwidth and efficient networks, why not split these speeds to permit higher data limits for lower costs. I'd rather have my LTE speeds "split" so that my 2Gb plan becomes an 8Gb plan for the same monthly cost. I'd rather take 2 megabytes/s for 8Gb than 8 megabytes/s for 2Gb. Anyone see this?
