The cap is reasonable.
But I think the argument here might not be whether 250GB per month is reasonable, but whether allowing a U.S. carrier for the first time to charge overage fees opens the door to a future where those caps are constantly trending downwards, while the per GB fees rise upwards.
Honestly, once the door is open I have to believe it's a downward slide....
As opposed to undisclosed (and seemingly arbitrary) caps and disconnection? This choice is the lesser of the two evils.
But that you're worried about it gives me pause.
I am worried about a static cap -- I share your concern that it will retard much-needed growth.
I'm also still thinking about myself -- 6 Mbps/384 Kbps here. With 250 GB being roughly 768 Kbps (constant), I have to wonder what the
customers in Minneapolis who shell out $150 a month for 50/5 Mbps are thinking right about now!!--
