Without higher caps, what good is it?

I completely fail to see the value in going to a higher speed tier when they all have the same cap. I actually downgraded - saving $10 a month since the upload speeds are the same - as are the caps.

Get rid or tier the caps - or it is smoke and mirrors. I still think it is very interesting how the Xbox 360 streaming HD package from Netflix came out within a month of when Comcast started to officially enforce the caps. Can anyone say "Anti-Trust"?

I don't think Comcast *enforces* caps per se, except in situations where you're on a crowded node. They also have the highest "soft cap" in the industry at this point.

Now I'm not saying I like 250GB as a cap; I'm pretty sure it puts online backup out of reach for me. However if you really, really want an uncapped connection Comcast's biz class options are reasonably priced, something that can't be said of most other cable companies' business cable internet pricing schemes.
