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.

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.
