True, but, as we have discussed before, mobile users, especially in the US,
have dramatically lowered expectations of internet access from their mobile
devices vs. what they expect from a household ISP.

We expect half the services we want to be crippled by mobile carriers because
they don't like competition. We file lawsuits when that happens on our
terrestrial connections.
