Done that. Welcome to the world of no responses. So far for me, at least.
As you can See from that letter in my post, MY LOCAL CONGRESS WOMAN RESPONDED. It did how ever take 5 weeks or so.

Remember these people want to go farther with their political careers. If they feel fighting Data caps will win them votes they may take it that extra step forward. We just need to show them that we care about it enough, that we will remember them at ballet time.

I was only able to get their DSL 1.5MBps tier due to my location. Cox Communications is too lazy to come out and lay RG11 cable on the lines so I could continue getting their high speed cable at my new house. So, even though there's a 250GB cap on me, there's no way I'll be exceeding that, or even nearing it. Not on this connection lol. Broadband caps are clearly due to corporate greed, but it's hardly going to affect me on this POS connection. I game, i download, I stream, etc etc, and there's just no way I'll be nearing 250GB a month. Those of you who torrent 24/7 obviously will.

I'm pretty sure that is what I read. I'll make sure to look again the next time that commercial is on.

Im thinkin I need to switch to an ISP that doesnt impose false caps, not to mention usage caps.
the 3Mb/s they advertise and the ~375KB/s speed you actually get are the same. They advertise it as 3 MegaBITS per second. 1 BYTE is equal to 8 BITS, therefore 3Mbps = 375KBps

This definitely sucks.

But... Since everything is on the internet now, cancel that worthless TV subscription, cancel the useless landline phone and pay $80/mo for business class internet limited to 6mbs and no data caps. Download those TV shows from the internet.

This just means the internet is more expensive. 6mbs may seem too slow for some people, but at least it's not restricted.

DSL is 150GB/mo
Uverse is 250

I probably wouldn't hesitate to do that, but the simple fact is that there isnt anything like that available where i live. stuck on crap 1.5Mbps from qwest.
