Re: what is the point of 50Mbps with a 250gb cap they should use

said by swhitney2003:

How much total you can download is irrelevant to the types of things you do on the internet. Having 50mbps doesn't mean you can now download 14TB, it just means you can get your content faster. .1% of customers are 'affected' by this cap, meaning people with 50mbps probably wont be downloading any more than they would with 6mbps.
Some people think they are buying a OC line for $50-$60(or $130) per month.

They forget all too quickly(or don't understand) what residential means.

I have gone from 1.5mbps to 16mbps and still consume ~30GB per month... my downloads just finish WAY faster.

Some companies think that internet content is designed for modems. They forget all to quickly (or don't understand) what progress means.

And an OC3 (basic OC line) is 155Mbit both ways so I doubt anyone thinks that

Resi should simpily mean
Asymetrical speed, no uptime garuntee, 1 Dynamic IP
(sure I skipped an OC-1 line but who would ever "Want" that)
50Mbit and a T3 is 45Mbit so who is ever going to pay thousands more per month for 5Mbit

WTF business does anyone have consuming 250GB per month?
If you want a connection without limits, get one! Duh!
Some "chump" abusing the network gets smacked - I don't see the problem here...
A bandwidth hog gets booted? Good!

I am *STILL* not affected by the cap, neither are over 14 million other Comcast subs.

Ya get what ya pay for - ever hear that expression?
For $50, one should not expect a $1500 connection. Right?

With an OC(or T3), one can light it up 24/7/365 and no one will complain.
With a $50 cable connection, someone is going to notice, ya know?
They will not be pleased about it.

What business is it of yours to ask what somebody else does with their service they pay for? Do you ask a car owner what business it is of theirs to be driving over 100K miles a year? As long as they pay taxes to upkeep the roads and they drive the speed limit its none of your business. Your attitude, "I dont do this so nobody else should either" is insulting. The bandwidth hog today could be the average user in a few years.
