"We all" don't actually all get that sort of bandwidth.  I am theoretically
on an unlimited plan, and speed is generally about 1.5MB/s, but given that
bandwidth gets seriously throttled after 100MB or so, I'd be really
hardpressed to download an entire DVD monthly.

Here in Canada, Telus is cutting mobile customers for using too much of
their "unlimited" bandwidth.

btw, here, "y'all" is a boat...
