    It seems more likely the passenger exceeded his data cap through email and file downloads, not page views. Maybe next time he should choose the option to pay by the hour.

    As for his complaint about the internet being slow during, he was uploading a 4 MB file. Upload and download speeds are rarely the same. The majority of people are browsing the web and don’t need it. You send a small request for a new page, and a lot of data comes back with text, images, etc.
