i repped the op too, but my point is that yes you are just wasting bandwidth and potentially audio quality.

ive paid for internet access on a plane and if i did i would appreciate people not streaming audio or video they could have simply brought with them.

even if 5 people on the plane wanted to use the internet service, none of them could stream if they all tried to. get it?

Wrong point! GoGo WiFi set up to stream audio or Surf web! Just no Video. Every row on this plane has a WiFi icon lit above them! System set up so everyone will enjoy! No one is suffering bandwidth problems U presume. U get that?

you are wrong. the bandwidth is limited and precious.
bring the music you want to listen to with you and free up bandwidth for others (and yourself!) to do whatever else you want to do.
