My statement to Chucker is the answer to what I'm trying to explain.

Except for slower connections that never happens.

Easily proven wrong: Stream any iTunes Radio audio channel and monitor its Rx throughput.

I wasn't talking about video streaming with caching and I'll agree that its characteristics can be as you've described. But in my experience Internet Radio streaming typically works as I've described, not utilizing more bandwidth/throughput/whatever-you-wanna-call-it than necessary.

Sorry I didn't make the type of streaming more explicit in the beginning, though I did admit to not necessary using the most accurate terminology. And maybe what I've just written could be clearer but right now I don't care since I'm about to watch a movie with my wife before it gets too late.

Really low throughput radio channels may seem to work that way, yes.

How "really low" do you mean? Any channel up to 192kbps I've tested definitely works that way; there's no "seems to" doubt about it. If you have counter-examples please post them.

I simply meant that without actually finding the technical info on it, it seems to be right.
