Not much of an option - take it or leave it. I'm surprised they didn't
offer selling more data packs to you if you need it beyond the 200Gb
limit instead of throttling which will just piss people off.
Imagine you're in a household of even 2 children with homework needs,
let alone paid for streaming services for sports viewing.
People won't think this is a big deal until Dad is watching the final of
some obscure sporting event and the little 'loading' wheel appears on
his screen. I hope he hasn't been drinking!
I think My Republic just lost multiple customer segments.

Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you're gonna die, so how do you fill in the space between here and there? It's yours. Seize your space.
