Caps, lol

What can you do with 20GB or 10GB in a month that you cant do on dial up?
A 768K connection can download 250GB a month.
You can download 18 GB a month on $5 56K dialup.
These caps are a joke.

I see that 18GB on 56k per month trumpeted a lot.

That is assuming you can get the full 53.333 for 24/7/30 days a month. And assume a provider lets to stay logged on that long. In reality, you see 41.200 or so in places where satellite competes.

If that. I remember fixing a computer 10mi out and the fastest her dialup line would connect to was 26.4kbps. This was with my USRobotics v.92 Courier modem.

It would've been faster just to take her computer, drive into town, connect it to my router, and fetch the updates instead of waiting a day or two.
