At home- wifi, work- wifi, friends houses- wifi. Granted the app doesn't support it now, but if that's the only thing eating your data plan and you're always going over it consistently then you could always find something else to do aside from watch tv all the time. "Waaa.... Verizon is making it expensive to be lazy... WAAAA"

Having people think that they NEED FTTH is laughable at best. Really, take a moment and think of home many people you know that would actually utilize that pipe. Now think about how many people you know actually utilize all of a coax pipe even with a 10mbps xfer. 100mbps is pretty sweet, I can still remember upgrading my 14.4 modem to a 28.8. But if you think about it the only people that would actually use the full potential of that pipe are a few college kids sharing a place with all their xboxes hooked up while d/l the next crappy album by some band to put on their ipod.

The universe is an island, surrounded by whatever it is that surrounds universes.
