Is downloading lots of data "mis-use" of a data connection?  I thought
that was the intended use  :)

I've never fallen foul of a fair use policy personally, and I don't mind
paying for the large amount of data (or texts, or whatever) I tend to
use - I just wish it was easy to shop for a high-end package by looking
at the main figures for them, instead of having to dig around in the
small print for each company's personal definition of the word
