Hmmm... I don't agree. If 40% of TV owners where using regularly their
TV sets, we wouldn't find that excellent for the media status...
Additionally the statement wasn't describing usage as "regular". How
often those 35%-40% are using the service ? To do what ? How much they
spend for data services ?  When we would have those figures, then we'll
be able to comment.

And additionally, what is a "3G" service ? Do users are using 3G
exclusive service or they mostly use services that already exist in 2.5G
(like games, ringtones, etc..)

Be very careful with that kind of assumptions. The details matters.
