[citation][nom]samwelaye[/nom]Good luck getting that 1.5Gb/s download speed even over LTE. Hell good luck getting that speed any time. Even though the screen is 1080p, who the hell needs uncompressed video when they stream? Where are you streaming this uncompressed stream from? Use realistic workloads here come on. Not saying things like Netflix and Hulu wont use up your data, but you are extremely exaggerating and giving a 100% impossible scenario.[/citation]
He said a 100 minute video is 8GB, which translates to around 1.33MB/s (this is the x264 encoded video). I dont know why he talks about uncompressed 1080p though.
That said, 4g LTE at my house is 14 down and ~4 up. I can burn through my 4GB in a heartbeat. Or more specifically, around 45 minutes. Beyond that, its $10/2GB (or $10/1GB if I dont add data before I reach the cap). Which means youre paying ~$26/hour for internet usage. So a 1080p movie would cost you around $50. Seems pretty absurd, doesnt it?
