Re: Speed Upgrades Coming

What use if a 75 mbit connection going to be if their data cap is 250 GBs. Hopefully they don't start enforcing that pretty soon.

There were a few data services mentioned in the pres-release. Hopefully they will focus on added services to generate revenue instead of caps. Caps, after all, should apply to any services they offer.

Just because you have a faster connection doesn't mean you will use more data you just get things done faster.

I finally got my self upgraded from 12 Mbps to 18 Mbps and I don't use anymore data per month I just get downloads done faster or if someone is streaming netflix it doesn't slow down what I'm doing as much anymore.

But is does drive the ability and desire for more data as services grow around the greater bandwidth. With more bandwidth we have the potential to need more data.
