This has always been the end-goal:

  * How many IPTV channels do I get; not how much bandwidth do they require?
  * How many annual free Voice minutes do they get; not how many
    concurrent calls can I fit into 128Kbps?
  * Is Netflix 4K streaming included; not how much bandwidth do I have
    for streaming?
  * e.t.c.

Very interesting - don't you feel that an initial outlay like that could
put some potential customers off? Then again, per capita income in
Denmark, I'd imagine, could allow most to think about this. If all that
buys me Internet access for 5 years before I have to shell out anymore
wedge, I'd do it.
