You did well to find the relevant section on data usage, as that’s quite a lengthy document wink

 

I think it might be a reflection of the increasing numbers of people who are moving to streaming services for music, films, and TV, rather than relying on than the traditional formats such as CDs, and DVDs. I recently traded in my 25 year old hi-fi separates, and I’m now using Tidal on a wireless music system, and it’s only my budget which is preventing me from trying their higher quality “lossless” streaming service. I think this is what unlimited broadband services were intended for. 

 

My CD collection only has ornamental value at the moment, and I daresay my DVDs will be next  thinking
