Not sure, but I wouldn't think many, but I usually watch Netflix on WiFi, and use the 3G for lighter, roving-specific
data, like map updates, or short term email updates.
I understand the new plans, and think that they're trying to capture revenue from their heaviest users, (a typical
5GB user will now pay $55/mo instead of $30, a 10GB user $105) and hopefully plow that back into more infrastructure.
I hope they're seeing this dedicated new crop of customers as an opportunity to expand. The new pricing is gentle
enough for the "typical" user that I don't perceive it as gouging, but a way to capture revenue from their heaviest
The App Store already won't let you download an app update bigger than 20MB over 3G. I think they're driving heavily
towards a "wifi+3g" model, with WiFi effectively covering the primary "high bandwidth" applications.
I'm interested in the idea of "free" and painless access to a well-distributed network of WiFi hotspots: this is
certainly a good stepping stone until 4G/WiMax becomes ubiquitous.
