The bandwidth hungry/popular sites... e.g. YouTube, Facebook are all heavily marketed by the smart phone companies. Having recently shopped for one, all had a facebook/Youtube logo to show you how easy it is to use these services from your phone.
I totally agree with 'pay for your bandwidth allowance' camp. If you pay for a service that offers 10GB of 3G traffic on your phone, then that's what you should be entitled to. And all traffic should be equal.
I've never understood why mainstream ISP's and mobile co's do not charge per GB at a reasonable rate rather than offering an attractive bulk allocation of bandwidth. Why not price it like income tax bands, where heavier users pay more for their 'extra'.
