Re: What if you cover of your cap?

It really seems like they are using this as more of a punishment than as an attempt to manage "fairness."

I don't think they ever had "fairness" in their intentions, it's just comic relief.

The idea is to make the connection unbearable so people will buy "Tokens". (More data).

In unrelated news FAP has a very different meaning in most parts of the internet than "Fair Access Policy", it might be more accurate.

you get throttled to dial-up speeds.

I don't understand how they can justify doing this. I always thought it was strange to throttle users so drastically. Why not a tiered throttling? Why not throttle speeds by 1/2 after so much, then by 1/4, then by 1/8, etc.? Why go from full speed to ridiculously, painfully, unbearably slow all at once? It really seems like they are using this as more of a punishment than as an attempt to manage "fairness."
