Of there's a monopoly, then you would expect it to come from profit (monopoly prices are at the highest consumers will take ), if there's competition (or credible ways for new entrants to a msrket) taxes will go strait to the consumer . I don't know what it's like in Turkey , but I'm willing to bet in my area taxes wouldn't be passed on , cable Internet is already the price that maximize a revenue .

Can they sell 5-6 times as much ice?

I haven't been, but if there's always a line for the ice, then they can make sure they have enough ice for the entire time by limiting sell rate.

People will buy less because of the time cost.

I didn't read the whole article, it just seems strange to me the assumption that the time cost isn't intentional.

Tmobile has stated they will throttle, but only for customers using bittorrent and other P2P.

I will admit I've done that some on my phone, but only over hotel WiFi, I subscript to usenet anyway.

I'm only allowed to tether 5gb on my plan, but that's been enough (this month I'm at 14.5gb total, top users play music 3 gb, podcasts 2.5gb, tethering 2gb).

If I didn't have unlimited, that 14.5 gb would have been far lower, I only use wifi to control my chromecast when my tablet isn't in arm's reach.

Certainly all the podcasts, and most of the music would have been wifi.

Put no trust in cryptic comments.
