Rumour : BIS to be discontinued with BB10?
This article popped up today in South Africa :
BlackBerry 10: the end of uncapped BIS in SA?
"Industry speculation suggests that BlackBerry 10 (BB10), which will be launched on 30 January 2013, will make use of a new network architecture which will require BlackBerry 10 subscribers to purchase standard data bundles similar to Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
According to BlackBerry news website Nerdberry, they received information shortly after BlackBerry World in May 2012 that BlackBerry 10 devices would no longer access the BlackBerry servers in the current manner.
It is rumoured that BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) will still make use of Research in Motion’s (RIM’s) BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS), but that other data services such as web surfing will run through a standard Internet APN (Access Point Name).
If this speculation is accurate, we may see bundled BlackBerry smartphone plans which include a data allocation (hence a standard data plan) and unlimited BIS for BBM."
PURE SPECULATION IMO....

I was under the impression they were just going to make it optional?
Choice 1: No BIS, regular data transmission. No compression, no security advantages by using RIM's NOC.
Choice 2: The BIS network we're used to.
Choice 3: BES, for corporations that don't want compromise.
So the consumer has a choice for whether or not they want to be paying for "BB Data".
