   Good point, but anyway that file will also have that quality upgraded, and probably more than the online-game :).

   Today, 20% of people is just using 80% of the network, meaning that 80% of people is just using 20% of network. It doesn't seems fair to me that all the costs are paid equally. In a wonderful world, flat rates will just haf down and everything else will be "extras"....

I think your analogy is completely backwards.  Yes, everyone gets out of the way of the ambulance,
because the ambulance is more important.

But the real time game is NOT more important than downloading the file that contains the
information on how to turn off the flow of the natural gas pipeline when there is an explosion.

What you are proposing in your analogy is not that "everyone should get out of the way of the ambulance",
but that "everyone should get out of the brand new Ferrari so it can race with the Maserati."
