As the purpose of the caps is to thwart Netflix and other online video offerings, TWC et al will find themselves in the crosshairs of the "Justice" department and sued by states attorneys general for violations of anti-trust regulations. The FCC will weigh in and spank them as well.
The negative publicity will benefit whichever ISP decides "Unlimited means Unlimited" and campaigns as such. Users will flock. TWC et al will the loser.
To put caps into perspective a 90 minute HD movie or TV program is about 14 GB.
From what service? Netflix HD streams are not even anywhere close to that size. I think it really has to do with what they are being encoded with. I watch many movies streamed to my TV via Netflix and they are all right around 800 MB..Of course these are standard definition. HD pushes roughly 1.5-2 Gigs. -- Block Accounts | UseNet Now
