This is BS that any ISP is going to put in a monthly CAP for anything. Also I love how they put in there that their 1 - 3GB cap is slightly under what business do!! I'm sorry, I am an IT Director at a small company (35 Desktops) and we use tons more bandwidth then lets say 5GB/month.
Just our website alone (which is everyone's home page) does about 8GB's a month! So I think it is BS and hope that Qwest goes down hard for this!!!
That's my comment, and I am sticking to it!
I average about 10gb per day with 1.5mbps DSL
20gb per day with 3.0mbps
40gb per day with 6.0mbps
Even at 1.5mbit on DSL my consumption is about 300gb per month... I'm not a youtube yunkie which in my opinion is low quality, crappy video
Broadband is meant to be used as much as possible.
Anyone who only consume 1 to 3 GB is not a broadband user but a minority who is a dialup user and do not use broadband for video...

So uhm did you read the story or follow along like a lemming?
"Qwest goes on to insist that most customers consume "1-3 Gigabytes per month," a number that is "slightly higher for business customers."
No where did they say anything about a 3GB Cap. Just that anything over 3GB is considered excessive usage compared to other customers.
Gee I was able to read his message and understand what he meant without finding a new to be an jerk.
Maybe you should work on your comprehension and being able to read between the lines before responding.
