Unlimited Internet Radio Data (like T-Mobile)

So, I know the idea of unlimited data is highly unlikely, but I propose another alternative. I saw this article about T-Mobile in the states: http://techcrunch.com/2014/06/18/t-mobile-stops-counting-data-used-with-spotify-pandora-itunes-radio-and-certain-other-music-services/ and I'm thinking, why can't Koodo do this? Spotify is in Canada now, and you can,with a VPN, get Pandora too... Can this be an option, or at least talked about? Basically, regular plans, but like pay 5 bucks more a month for unlimited access to internet radio services? These services require a data plan to function, but current plans just don't match the need created by these services, Koodo could really set the trend by allowing this idea. Where I am country radio is limited, and my wife hates it, so when driving alone is my only real chance to listen, not having a station makes internet radio my only option.

Sirius radio is another option for listening to your choice of genre while on the road.

Not exactly an answer to your request, but I found that if you REALLY have to use data to listen in Internet Radio, AccuRadio is the best compromise between quality and bandwidth...3-4x less b/w than Pandora or TuneIn, around 20Megs/hr. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.slipstream.accuradio&hl=en They have a Country channel (or more).
