When on travel, (as I am now and have been since last August) I am forced into streaming through my personal 4G hotspot as even wired internet is not fast enough to keep pace.
And that costs a bit more than the subscription. One of the reasons I prefer Hilton over Marriott hotels and suites.
It's still a bargain over the pathetic analog Speed feed found in the hotel.
For all intents and purposes Speed if free to me. I understand that every one has a unique situation an so what may be true for one person may not be true for another.

I find it pretty interesting how people will justify their spending. Like the person who 'needs' that BMW.
