How important is LTE?

I'm 6 months into 'premium connectivity', and I'm not going to renew it either. I've watched Netflix 3 times so far, but just for maybe 10 minutes. And tried to use it like 6 times, but the other 3 it didn't work, even with full signal strength. Weird. I also listen to Spotify, but I have it on my phone, so same thing. I hardly ever use nav, and I don't live in a big city, so a non-issue as well. I listen to CNN/MSNBC sometimes, but reception is absolute crap, so I'm not going to miss that. Ha ha.

Finally, I thought I'd lose being able to watch Nexflix if we ever travel again on the Tesla, but glad to read I could just connect the car to my phone as HotSpot, so I'll try that one of these days, and see if it works. But if not, not a big deal. It's rare that we have to wait for the car more than 10 minutes.
