Yep. How much download did the average user make 10 years ago? I think it's very likely we'll be over the 250 GB cap in another 10 years.

Probably sooner. The point is until people go over that 250 GB and get charged or disconnected they aren't going to care.

Seeing as most people don't know what 1GB even is, never mind 250 GB.... people won't know why they are being charged or disconnected.

But right now I have AT&T DSL. It's so slow I can't imagine going over my 150 GB cap.

However the funny thing is if I had AT&T Uverse, they wouldn't count my video in my cap at all. I could use 50 TB of video and it wouldn't bother them at all.

Why is that sensible?

That all being said, I would prefer faster internet speeds than I have now but with AT&T that's "all my address qualifies for".

If I had faster speeds I can imagine bumping against that cap. Sure I could.

Comcast set a 250GB cap years ago, and it still hasn't caught up to average usage. They increased it to 300GB. I could see them increasing it by 50GB every 2 years. The cost to deliver a gigabyte will decrease as they upgrade their network.

I could understand mobile data caps being necessary as there is a marked performance decline at peak hours.
