Already fairly common in Finland to have just LTE dongle for Internet,
especially for younger people. DNA quotes average consumption of 8GB
per subscriber per month. You can get unlimited for 20eur/month, it's
much faster than DSL with lower latency. And if your home DSL is down,
it may affect just you, so MTTR can be days, where as on mobile MTTR
even without calling anyone is minutes or hour.
Even more strange, providers, particularly one of them, is printing
money. It's not immediately obvious to me why this the same
fundamentals do not seem to work elsewhere. In Cyprus I can't buy more
than 6GB contract and connectivity is spotty even in urban centres,
which echoes my experience in US and central EU.
