Yeah, the patches hurt. People bitch about voice too but that really shouldn't be an issue.
Still, it's a sad state of affairs when someone can't even play a game - something that has traditionally been low bandwidth usage - without going over a cap.
Truthfully I'm on the fence with that. As far as I'm concerned, if you're doing more than simply browsing the web and checking email, and you're regularly playing games online, you've just upgraded yourself beyond a 'lite' user.
The question is, is Cogeco misleading their customers with their package descriptions?
Turbo 20 - 80GB cap - "Downloading movies, videos or online games
are part of your daily life? Other family members use the Internet? Subscribe to High Speed Internet Turbo 20!"
Ultimate 30 - 175GB cap - "Passionate about movies, games
and music? Choose the High Speed Internet Ultimate 30 package! This ultra-fast connection offers you more of the things you love!"
Ultimate 50 - 250GB cap - "Time is precious so why wait needlessly? Download movies, music and games
in record time! Choose the High Speed Internet Ultimate 55 package for the ultimate in entertainment. Our fastest package."
So let's consider parents for a moment, who want to purchase or upgrade their package for their kid who wants to play World of Warcraft and some PS3 games.
Ultimate 30 and Ultimate 50 seem to be the most appropriate packages for gamers; however Turbo 20 makes references to online games and other
family members, so it sounds like that's the
best package for a family with a little timmy... but is an 80GB cap enough for him and "other family members"?
