Not to beat the muni fiber drum too loudly, but...oh well, yeah, I will.
This is what you get with no real local competition. Once people start getting squeezed by these caps, maybe more places will do what they should be doing now and building out muni fiber.
And for folks who would bemoan the poor cable companies and telcos, it isn't like they've been losing money all these years. They just want to suck more out of their customers and kill off potential competition from alternative video services. They scream about unfair competition when someone comes along to offer something better, yet they engage in these tactics to make their own overpriced services viable. Disgusting.
