Just wow, thanks for trying to prove me wrong with comments about congestion which does nothing to justify caps.
wrong, yet again.
you seem to feel entitled that by paying $60/month for your residential internet connection, that you should be able to use it the same as someone who pays $4000/month for their fractional ds3. additionally, people who feel justified in using the connection 24/7 are not *helping* the situation, but exploiting a finite resource.
i see full speeds on my line all the time. i've monitored my line with cacti. i *never* see over 150gig/month usage, with no cable tv and working from home. all video is streamed (via web or hulu) and my career requires remote access to multiple customer sites. i see full speeds all the time, usually more due to powerboost. there is no problem with cox delivering speeds promised to my home.
if *you* feel justified in being able to use your connection 24/7, then you are doing nothing than making the problem worse. the reason you are able to pay $60/month for a 15/1 connection is through statistical averages and oversubscription. don't like it, ask your local mso what it would cost for a truly dedicated line at those speeds. you simply feel nothing more than entitlement, and that can't be fixed; its your deficiency - not mine or your providers.
