Time Warner tried to get a 5GB - 40GB caps system in place.
Netflix streaming movies tend to use about 2200Kbps. This means a 5GB cap (with no other Internet usage) would mean 5 hours of Netflix streaming per month or a mere 10 minutes per day. Meanwhile, a 40GB cap would be about 42 hours of Netflix time or less than 90 minutes per day.
Comcast's 250GB cap, however, would allow for over 264 hours per month of Netflix streaming, or over 8 1/2 hours per day. Again, this is without any other Internet activity so actual "Netflix time" would be less. Still, I'll take a 250GB cap over a 40GB cap any day.--
