When I am at a cafe I use a web based encrypted email program, and if I email a large attachment (say a pdf file), then it goes http outbound. The other major outbound bandwidth use is scp (very rarely, ftp or ssh). I do not really see what the touch typing limit is relevant to - whose primary Internet use is telnet /ssh now-a-days ? Again, when I go to a cafe in another city, I am generally there to get some work done, and frequently have a bunch of previously prepared files to send. I may not be a typical user...
