I like how they say this 40 hour per month cap on free accounts will only affect 4% of listeners. If the number is really that small, then why do it? Thanks to Gabe for the link. This week we will begin communicating directly with a small number of our listeners as we introduce a 40-hour-per-month limit on free mobile listening. Most of you reading this will never hit the limit. In fact, it will affect less than 4% of our total monthly active listeners. For perspective, the average listener spends approximately 20 hours listening to Pandora across all devices in any given month.
