Not all network links are equally expensive. I have to pay for tens of  
gigabytes I send or receive over submarine or mobile wireless links.  
Paying three cents per megabyte over mobile wireless links is not too  
uncommon. OTOH, only a flat connection and service fee is payed for  
sending and receiving traffic over domestic copper and fiber. I don't know  
whether this is something UAs should bother catering to if bandwidth only  
goes up.
