Oh, well that makes it a little better I suppose. But I still think that's crappy of ISP's to take advantage like that.
Do you have free WiFi at McDonalds, Wendy's, Krystal, etc like we do? If so, you could just go there, or set up a directional WiFi antenna on your house to use their connection.
Yes a few places including Starbucks now but they tend to have very limited bandwidth. Certainly not stable enough for video streaming.
I am however lucky where I am to have both unlimited cable + DSL for the moment. In other areas, many people aren't so lucky.
