No - their actions *are* those of smart guys.  They knew damned well that
they didn't need to add capacity, because the chances that they'll lose
an iOS customer to Android over slow update speeds is infinitesimal. In other
words, they successfully made the bandwidth consumption an externality.

(What, like you don't look at *your* network and wonder "How can I stick
somebody else with the cost of XYZ?".  :)
