Don't get me wrong, I hate the current pricing for data that the carriers are charging. While "unlimited" is a dream we are likely to never get back, they do need to greatly up the amount of data you get on each pricing tier. Take Verizon who has a $20 plan for 1gig a month. No one would be complaining if that $20 gave you 3 to 5 gigs. At that point the entry level pricing becomes much more useful and honestly anyone using over that many gigs a month would be willing to pay a little more for it. Furthermore, we should just be able to buy chunks of data from a carrier and use it on whatever device I wish. Why do I have to sign up for a separate data plan for all my hardware? Imagine a world were you could spend a certain amount of money for a chunk of data (let's say 5 gigs) and share that between your iPhone, iPad and whatever laptop you want to tether. The simplification of pricing done this way would be much more advantageous to the consumer. Having said all this, I stand by my statement that you can't just make a blanket statement about how many hours of video you can watch. It really does depend on the video types and compression used by the services in question. I also take issue with the statement that "one cannot really use it." Your overall experience of data usage on the go is going to be much nicer on LTE then 3G. Considering they kept the pricing the same, it is not a bad upgrade to have.
