Re: Yep... business as usual

no they need to expand to new customers first before they add more speed and bandwidth to currant customer's.using more than 250 GB is completely ridiculous.they ought to just cut you off

all i get is 200mb a day if that's all you had you would appreciate the 250 cap

It always amazes me how some people want to dictate how I use my connection! I'm the one paying for it, NOT YOU!

Until you start using more than the break-even amount of bandwidth on shared infrastructure. Than my bill starts to go to subsidize your usage.

It's like welfare, only we subsidize the greedy instead of the needy.

Then it sounds like the company need to improve it's shared infrastructure.

Fortunately I'm with an ISP that doesn't cap.

This post made me chuckle. Is your ISP Earthlink?

Um, isn't that already standard practice at all cable companies?

I have to pay for your ESPN, even though I would never watch it, if I want to get any cable-tv channels at all.

Not that anyone "needs" cable TV or internet.
