Re: Internet for all
said by IowaCowboy:Unrelated to the topic at hand, but why do people keep mentioning gaming in the context of caps? Most gaming uses very little bandwidth, indeed, there are games that can still be played quite well on a dialup connection. Other games use dialup levels of bandwidth, they just need a lower latency than dialup can provide.
but not enough data to do fun things such as gaming, streaming HD movies, etc.
Gaming really doesn't amount to much in the grand scheme of things. Downloading the latest and greatest games from Steam/elsewhere requires moving a sizable number of bits, but playing that game once you have it really doesn't amount to much.
