Right now this is not really an issue because

most companies are not actually kicking people off when they reach or exceed the limit...and most dont hit their caps

But as data use rises and caps stay the same or are lowered, I expect this issue to explode

3000 kilobits per second /(divided by) 8 bits = 375 kilobytes per second X(times) 60 seconds = 22500 kilobytes per minute (times) 60 minutes = 1350000 kilobytes per hour /(divided by) 1024 kilobytes =1318.3 megabytes per hour /(divided by) 1024 megabytes = 1.28 gigabytes per hour X(times) 24 hours =30.89 gigabytes per day X(times) 5 days = 154.45 gigabytes. My point is if I'm paying for 3 megabits it doesn't seem fair that I only get to us it for 5 days out of the month. How about you credit me the other 25 days if I don't go over. $40 per month /(divided by) 30 days = $1.33 X(times) 25 days without service = $33.33 credit due each month. If not received my attorneys will be in contact. thank you.
