There is no technical reason for caps now, especially with 8 downstream channels.
Yeah, to fund the next round of upgrades as utilization continues to grow.
Unless you're promising to never use more data in the future than you do right now?
So they are committing to using all the additional revenue to invest in the network? Or committing to sending damned near all of it to shareholders and not building out the network?
Will the additional revenue be translated with 100% efficiency into network expansion? Probably not.
It does create a situation where if they run out of capacity they can't sell more bandwidth to increase revenue, however, which tends to mean that capacity augmentation projects get funded much more easily.
