My "good" iPhone user is consistently at 1.5GB of data per month. My other users who haven't met a link they didn't like are blowing past the 5GB mark easily.

Data is expensive in Canada and we are paying hundreds of dollars more for my iPhone users than my BBs.

Yes, Bell has a 6GB plan but my iPhone users also travel into the US and "need" tethering so I need to stick with a 1GB North American plan for now.

If we switched all of our BBs to iPhones, I could see my bills going up by $10k-$15k per month.

How do you "save millions"?
The millions are saved in server infrastructure and whatnot.
