Higher Speeds Force Some to Download More?

Excessive consumption...

Don't the higher service speeds themselves contribute to "excessive consumption"?

You are less likely to download that 2-3 GB 720p HD Movie on Comcast's 1 MB / 384 Kbps service tier than you are to download it on the 12 Mbps / 2 Mbps or 20 Mbps / 4 Mbps tiers.

As for the 50 Mbps / 10 Mbps tier... you're even more likely to download it....

Since the downloads take less time, you'll have a higher consumption...

Fact is, the cap is the same for all of the tiers.
