I stumbled on this article from the New York Times technology section and it caught my attention. It talks about how in the ever-growing mobile world, soon companies will not have unlimited data plans, but rather plans that charge by just how much data you are using. It’s already happening in Indonesia. The article states that since nearly a third of the population is younger than 15 years old, “Telkomsel, the leading mobile operator in the country, offers a data plan called FlexiChatting for customers who want to do just one thing: gain access to and update Twitter and Facebook accounts on their cellphones.”

They say this is a “tailored mobile data plan” and pretty soon we may have the same kind. However, the article says that this type of plan may be helpful to some people. For example, people who are heavy social network users, and video, too.
