Re: "Wall Street punished us for investing in FIOS."

Really? People need good connections at home. I know I work from home, have an online bakup, VOIP, and an Apple TV. I love our 20/15 FIOS connection with no caps. I also love my data on the go but I need a good connection at home. I don't know anyone that has given up their high speed internet for the stuff on their phone. And with overages and limits I don't see that happening any time soon either.

Seconded. I hate remoting onto people's computers when they're working from home while I'm trying to help them perform a multi-Gigabyte software install and it takes an hour to download. I'm logged into some key things with my own admin credentials so obviously they cannot use the computer for as long as I'm in and working (this is typically when the automated, user-friendly installs don't work which does happen). I love it when individuals have decent connections as it means I'm not taking their computer away from them for an hour. Fast connections cut that stuff down to 5-10 minutes.

Ssshhh. You're supposed to be one of those sheep that hands over their wallet and likes shitty slow service with really low caps and defends all the fees and high prices.

But I'm not unfortunately . If I come across a capped connection I run it right to the point where the meter might think I've gone over and then shut the connection down. Aka, when I was stuck using a 3G connection with a 3GB cap. Blew through the cap in a few hours of normal usage.

Slow connections? I just keep them maxed until I get what I need done.
