Re: Why we have caps

Comcast decided to throttle/filter bittorrent which was hammering their network. Bittorrent is one of the highest users of bandwidth.

FCC said that was illegal, and you have to disclose how you manage your network, and it must be fair.

No problem, 250GB cap for all... up front, disclosed, fair.

I think the crowd here won't be happy until they get the most speed available, unlimited bandwidth with no conditions at all for a rock bottom price.

That 250GB cap does nothing but prevent people from using their connection they paid for. It is a practice of ripping off consumers.
We have had unlimited internet since 1995.
I could download more with my ATT dsl in 2000 than in 2011 with their BS caps.

The crowd here wont be happy until we get our unlimited/unrestricted internet back. ISPs can continue to charge for unlimited usage like they did from 1995 to 2011 and were greatly profitable.
It is bullshit when I only have a choice of ISPs that have caps, it is a monopoly that is limiting/restricting/destroying the internet.
Caps are what happens when every ISP now sells TV service and wants to unfairly stop competition.
