"Two - what else are you doing with the internet, exactly, that requires 250 gigs of download a month?"oh.. i don't know. how about everything but email?you do realize that we are not using an internet from 1998 anymore do you? web pages aren't 10kb html files anymore. streaming video's aren't 9 seconds long 510kb files anymore. just as a couple of examples. the internet today is a bandwidth hog granted. but it's the broadband ISP's themselves that have invested in, and asked us to use bandwidth hog services such as streaming HD video. but then instead of adding capacity to keep up with demand they create they say "sorry.. we don't want you to use as much of our internets anymore so we're going to limit you to this much every month."but what i think most people that are upset about a hardcap on their bandwidth usage is that it's on the "unlimited" plan. i mean really what do you think when you hear unlimited? if you think "limited" you should be smacked repeatadly with a sears christmas catalog.
