Already paying

I do keep seeing this question raised, but not the one related to the fact that we are already paying for that. Just begin to remember the TV ads just a few years back that were such a war on who has the fastest connection to offer and that cable is X times faster than DSL which is X times faster than dial-up and how cool it is that you can stream video and movies. THAT WAS the marketing strategy! Even now, with most companies (TDS & Charter for example) you can "chose" the faster (more expensive) pack. I do and I am happy, and now the same companies to say out loud "Well, yeah we said watching videos and movies is cool, but you're watching way to much and the fact that you're paying for the top bandwidth tear does not really mean you can actually use it" ... I can stop here for today
