Of course, that's not using Netflix data because that isn't charged in my account. I suppose if I did more video intensive stuff, my usage would go up, but I haven't gone totally off FTA tv.

These are people running businesses and families with children. If 
memory serves, one child averages about 20GB/month for educational 
purposes. And yes, there are typically many people using a single ISP 
account. Not just family, but employees as well. No, employees can't use 
mobiles; there's rarely service. No, I doubt that any of them would be 
torrenting or using video unnecessarily. At $10/GB that's not affordable.
