So, when are the HN-haters going to

So, when are the HN-haters going to launch their own satellite and sell insanely cheap and uncapped bandwidth to the masses?

If that happens I recommend going to another resturant, anyway.

This is more akin to Mcdonald charging $5.95 for a white castle mini slider. in which case SOMEone will open a new resturant give you 2 for the same price and make a fortune.
On the otherhand some people would just whine about it to other people and still go to the overpriced McD's.
It's easy to abuse a passive market

It's all about context...

We have no cellular service at all. It's not weak. It's not intermittent. It is nonexistent.

We have no internet services available. No wireless, no antenna or other line of site options. No DSL. No digital cable.

The only thing we do have is analog cable TV.

So, you can imagine, the HN internet service is awesome compared to dial-up or none. Most of the time we receive the full bandwidth that we pay for and is advertised. Once in a while the service is down but usually works a little while later. I frequently use the free nightly download window to d/l large files like .ISO images.

Anyway, HN is not a crap sandwich for us. Maybe we're lucky.

Well under this new system your FAP free nightly download windows is gone. You get an extra 20 GB during that time. I wonder if they count that 20 GB first or the original 20 GB?

Actually, these new terms won't affect us. Obama's government stimulus dollars that were seized from the taxpayers are subsidizing our internet connection and millions of others.

We have no contract, no equipment or installation charges, no termination fees and pay a flat rate for up to 5 years and can cancel at any time without penalty.

Any reduction in service levels would violate the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Federal Law) terms.

Pretty sure recovery act only affects the system you are on. If you want to jump to gen4, you have to play their game.
