capacity != amount of consumption. throttling does not stop people from downloading a lot.

Moreso, it stops them from burdening the network when the rest of us want to use it.
When VMUSA announced their service, "StopTheCap" types were bragging that they intentionally downloaded 400GB before being capped, only to protest, and get uncapped anew. That consumption led to the recission of the unlimited terms for the rest of us, and brought the network to its knees in the interim.
I'm all for industry offering "high capacity" service with a volume discount where they can to those who want it, and indeed, that's what Bell is doing. But I don't want to pay more for my nominal use to underwrite someone else's consumption habits.
