So when are they dumping the caps?

Since they have Docsis 3.0 almost everywhere it the caps shouldn't be needed. Since they claim the whole reasoning for caps was "network management"

Actually, they have stated the reason for the caps is to deal with "excessive usage." The congestion management system is used to handle short-term capacity constraints.

Real-time congestion is a technical issue.

Long-term high usage is a business model issue.
