E3 Doom Eternal Demo Made Me A Cloud Gaming Believer

I don't care what anyone says, a streaming service like this will mow through your data cap in no time. I have a 1TB data cap and regular gaming, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and internet usage alone puts me up against my monthly limit regularly.  Add in daily 4K, 60fps game streaming and you can kiss your cap goodbye.

In response to concerns that Stadia streaming might quickly eat up some users' Internet data caps, a Google representative told Ars that gameplay streams won't always require the "recommended" Mbps rates Google quotes for that level of video quality. A 4K, 60fps stream, for instance, would not use 35Mbps of data at all times, he said.
