Exactly. Where I live I have the choice of Time Warner Cable's Roadrunner or dial up. FIOS isn't available to my house yet and DSL seems more and more ignored as Verizon moves to FIOS.
So if Time Warner Cable instituted their dream caps, I'd have the choice of severely curtailing my Internet use (which doesn't involve things like downloading movies/music from P2P networks but does involve Netflix streaming), cutting Internet altogether (not really an option given that I'm a web programmer by trade), going back to dial up (again, not really an option) or paying Time Warner Cable more and more and more.
Oh yeah, those are some good options.--
