Hell a game on steam or other DD programs is around 10GB average nowadays and HD movies being 3GB+ per movie. Do you honestly not see how you can burn through that ridiculously low cap quickly? Or are you just that stupid? Opps I guess I called you a name, I look forward to you complaining about it then doing the exact same thing like the idiot hypocrite you are. The REAL reason for implementing caps is to discourage people from using netflix and use their service that surprise surprise, doesn't go against the cap.
Family? What's that? Oh, right...the three other people in my home sharing the connection! We use Netflix about twice a month AT BEST because we don't need to do that on a daily basis.
You talk about Steam and Netflix using up all this bandwidth, but doesn't that tell you that you're spending too much time on the computer? Doesn't take a genius to figure that out. Hell, I'm a programmer and I'm on the computer AT MOST two hours a day. I don't bother with video games much (outside of Black Ops [greatest game ever!]) and I don't watch TV outside of a couple shows weekly. I do spend an inordinate amount of time in the gym, running, cycling, playing basketball, and doing other activities that allow me to leave the Cheetos & Mountain Dew infested desk (that I'm sure you have).
I've mentioned before my mother works at Nike as a marketing executive and they constantly hear people talking about the brand apparel and shoes costing too much. Well, guess what? It's not meant for everyone! If you want "unlimited", switch...that easy, kid. EDIT
Also, reported for name calling.

Consider Netflix, Steam, Hulu, Youtube, Xbox live, Buying/Renting moving on Amazon etc there goes ur paltry 100gb at a garbage speed of 6mpbs.
its just sad that as Americans we pay premium price for some of the slowest internet. you really shouldnt be proud of it. Sad part is its people like you that allow them to rip everyone off its not us the savy consumers. if you ask how is it my fault? ill tell you your happy with ur crappy internet at expensive prices when everyone else is the world is running circles around us.
They're not ripping us off. They're protecting their right to offer services at a fair and reasonable price. Do you honestly expect to receive high-speed UNLIMITED internet for the paltry $50 you spend a month on it? As for these ridiculous arguments about the rest of the world owning us, who cares? The speeds are ridiculously fast as they are and I wouldn't even notice a speed increase. I have ZERO stream buffering, no lag, no issues period.Edited by floatingDivs - 5/11/11 at 3:55pm
