Given a choice, would you prefer a prepaid unlimited plan for something or pay as you use? More things I review recently -- mobile data plans, cable, broadband -- I realize pay-as-you-use end up being costlier. I do not understand the business sense behind this.

@am1t The pay-as-you-use plans seem very appealing, but they are only cost effective if you have controls in place. This is pretty common for cloud hosting providers. The per hour price for a VM is relatively low, but you need to be able to tear down unused VMs.
