[Neowin] Netflix CEO: Broadband caps are a money grab by ISPs - Page 8

post #71 of 76
I don't really care about caps anymore. All I do on the internet is read stuff and play games, stream a game on CBC once in a while. All our TV watching is done on our TVs. Download a game on Steam once in awhile.

They want their money, and as annoying as it is, that's how business works. Thats how they all work. If people are going to stream everything with a 10 dollar Netflix subscription and bypass cable, they will ding you on their internet services..

If people weren't so damn reliant on the internet, they wouldn't bother. But right now that's where the money is. Cell Phones as well.

That doesn't make any sense and is exactly the opposite of what i said.

What i said: pay for what you use
What you said: pay for everything + extra

Please elaborate, because one of us is not understanding the other very well.

That's a majority of all corporations and practically 100% of utilities Co's with natural monopolies these days. This isn't the 1940's, Executives don't have things like honor or morality. The only thing that matters these days are profits.

Internet used to be unlimited. Cable/satellite is unlimited. They decided to change the rules. So maybe they change the rules on Tv and lets see how happy you are with pay for what you use? From what I've read their not congested at all and even if they were they could manage it. What this seems to be is more like a way to hurt Netflix and put more money in their pockets while making their streaming services more attractive. At&T is supposed to be making record profits, they arent upgrading their infrastructure. Were paying more while getting slower service in a country thats supposed to be a super power that sound right to you?
