Would you pay for unmetered but throttled mobile internet?

For example imagine a company offered 1Mbps for $40, 2Mbps for $60, 4Mbps for $80, and 8Mbps for $100. All plans would also include unmetered mobile hotspot + unliminted calling/texting.

In theory these speeds running for 12 hours a day/31 days a month would let you download:

~160GB for 1Mbps

~320GB for 2Mbps

~640GB for 4Mbps

~1280GB for 8Mbps

Would such a service even be possible to maintain?
>>
Seems pretty fair, I would pay for that. The 1 Mbps plan would be more than enough for me. Even 360p youtube video streams are like 500 kbps so 1 Mbps isn't really that bad.

This would put comcast on suicide watch though. They have like a 250GB data cap. They would sperg out and try to sue the loving fuck out of this company though.
>>
>>51437410
Comcast is probably paying mobile carriers to not do this.
>>
As much as I love "muh speed" I would rather pay for unmetered internet. $100 for 8mbps for unmetered mobile hotspot sounds like a dam good deal to me.
>>
If I could connect this to my laptop, I would consider it. I have not a cellphone and would not want to carry one for it, but more importantly, I just do not donwload that mush stuff.

Not that I cannot see the value of it for some applications, but it just is that those applications I do not use.
>>
>>51437235
Comcast would go bankrupt if this happened. Of course I would pay for unmetered internet if it also included unmetered mobile hotspot.
>>
I already have that. Only slightly different.

My mobile phone internet is super fast until 6gb is used, then my mobile internet gets slow and unmetered.

My ISP has a public wifi in every router they place. So I can also use free wifi all across the country as I have my home internet with that ISP. As long as I'm near a building of someone who uses the same ISP, which is pretty much always.
>>
>>51437650
But an unmetered mobile connection would render the need for home internet null since it would also include unmetered mobile hotspot. So instead of paying for home internet + mobile internet you would just pay for one thing.
>>
>>51437703
Wireless is usually slower than cable/fibre. I'm not sure what limits the speed but I think it's the wifi receiver and the fact that radio waves go slower than light. Wireless I can download like 3mb per second while cable goes ten times as fast.

True but you have to consider what's worth more: slow 4-8Mbps unmetered internet or 50mbps cable internet with a 250gb data cap.
>>
>>51437841
Personally I don't see why I'd ever need super fast internet. Especially on my phone. I just have it because it's offered for a good price. But having no datacaps to worry about is important. But I guess it depends on the person.

Normies can barely use more than 60gb of internet a month but not having to worry about a stupid data cap would be a blessing.

>>51437776
Nigger, radio waves travel AT the speed of light. It's slower than cable due to latency caused by signal loss and by pavement apes uploading worldstar videos from their iphones which they traded their EBT for.
>>
>>51437235
I'd buy the fuck out of this, holy shit.
Too bad it'd never happen.

>>51440487
It would be an unmetered connection with unmetered hotspot. No cell company in burgerland offers that.
>>
>>51440380
They still throttle speeds and OP is assuming the theoretical company would give unmetered hotspot as well.
>>
>>51440599
Still too much money. I pay only 30$ for 20Mbps on my phone and have unlimited data. Hotspot is basically data sharing so you have unlimited that as well on any unmetered contracts.

I already get unmetered mobile & up to 5GB tethering for £15/mo. Just ran speed test, 37 down/14 up. Three. Cambridge, UK.

kek
>>
Yeah, I'd pay it.

It's a bit overpriced, but considering that's what I'm paying for my shitty 'uverse' service from AT&Fee, honestly I could cancel my service with them at the house and make up the difference. Current cellphone bill is $50, so if I spent another $50 on top, I could have the 8Mbps one, and that'd be better AND location independent.

For fucks sake go get an education before posting on a tech board. They are also slower because with cables you can add more channels (bandwith) by adding more cables. All cellphones in an area share the same wavelengths. Essentially there is a limited set of channels for everyone when you use wirelless.

In Australia, for fixed wireless NBN customers of Telstra, you start with 50/20, but you can pay for "Super Fast Speed Boost" which is $20 a month and bumps you to 100/40.

>Would such a service even be possible to maintain?
yes, very obviously, but isp's don't give a shit and just want you to pay as much money a s possible.

Portugal.
I pay 28€ a month for 30GB of data.
With that I get a second SIM that drinks from the same data pool, but also has unlimited national calls (capped at 10000 minutes), and 1000 minutes to europe and a couple other countries.

I rarely use more than 15-20GB on my phone as Im mostly at work or at home.
>>
>>51443534
how the fuck do you use 20GB on a phone?
>>
>>51437235
thanx but I prefer to keep paying my 25 eur for unlimited LTE, unlimited calls and unlimited texts.
I've also never seen any company restricting the use of mobile hotspot so I don't know why it's mentioned. Unless that's an american thing, then ok.

America, fuck yea! ;_;

Fuck yes I would. I currently pay $45 and have a data cap of 5GB with no hotspot unless I piggy up 10$/2GB.

I'm getting unlimited 4g that I can tether for 25 euro a month

this is exactly what my carrier is doing. mobile plans have unlimited data, but limited speed. fine with me, i don't need speed on mobile anyway.

What about metered, ultra throttled internet? I already do though in ausfailia.

wont happen it will saturate the gsm network and it will also replace wired internet
>>
>>51438058
No it does not lol
>>
>>51449199
Saturate? Don't cell towers have like a 100 gbit/s fiber wired connection?
>>
>>51451388
Not him but how about between the single cell tower and hundreds or thousands of phones connecting to it though the same medium at the same time?
The problem is you can only send so much data through cellular radio towers.
>>
>>51451451
That might be a problem on ancient 3G towers but I doubt lte towers have the same problem. At least if mostly everyone bought 2-4 Mbps connections then the towers could never become saturated.

With proper back haul design and sufficient resources ($$$) yes.

Would it be viable? Depends on the number of subscriptions and average user capacity consumption.

Light users will likely use their connection 1-2 hours a day.
Moderate users will likely use their connection 2-4 hours a day.
Heavy users will likely use their connection between 6-24 hours a day.

Most customers should fall between light-moderate usage groups, with 1/4-1/6 expected to be a moderate-heavy or heavy user.

A better practice to unlimited mobile internet would be a monthly data caps with the following service products.
80GB - 4Mbps - $30 (Concession Customers (Elderly, Students)
50GB - 4Mbps - $40 (Most customers)
100GB - 4Mbps - $60 (Some Customers)
250GB - 4Mbps - $80 (Few Customers)
Unlimited - 4Mbs - $100 (Few Customers)

These are bundled with an unlimited calling / texting mobile plan (for an additional $40p.m.)

what kind of ass backwards country doesn't have unmetered mobile data?
>>
>>51451903
This all defeats the point of OP's "unmetered" internet. What's stopping companies from giving unmetered mobile internet beside Judaism?

Most people would buy 2 mbps plans so the stress on the network would be really low even if everyone connected at once. Worrying about data caps is stupid. People shouldn't have to ration downloads like some kind of savages.
>>
>be italian
>get unlimited 10Mbps mobile internet for 25€/month
>>
>>51452028
Don't confuse people here, do you mean unlimited as in 10Mbps speeds for 30GB then 1Mbsp until the month ends or 10Mbps for 4,000GBs?
>>
>>51452053
10 Mbps for 4000GBs+
>>
>>51452074
It's actually just 3,269.5 GB of data you can download on a perfect 10 Mbps connection downloading 24/7 for a month.

Still pretty cash money of Italy to give you legitimately unmetered mobile internet.
>>
>>51437235
it will eventually become unmetered in the first world countries and european shitholes (balkans).

There are two ISPs that throttle, Comcast and AT&T. Most of the country has no data caps like that. Some of the capped regions don't even have enforced caps.
