I dunno, my 600 gb of steam games would cost me (at 1.50 for every gig over my 60 gb cap which is what cogeco enforces) 810$. Sorry, lol.

We get 25/4 mbps for $30 from comcast plus they never enforce the 250gb cap (which I regularly go over).

Huge amounts of revenue doesnt make up for crappy management.
I would use AOL as an example but they seem to be good at making terrible decisions and then weaseling out of the consequences.

And all I can do is give a sarcastic clap. Well done ISPs. You have a captive market, and you make full use of that.
Its every businesses dream.

Im paying $45 a month for what is supposed to be a 15/3 connection but ends up (even during peak hours) as around 19/4.

I agree, I had that samething but they said I had a 100Mbps connection? I wasn't getting anything higher then 765kb/s. Which made NO sense at all.

Do you have those new Bell internet packages? Because I didn't see anything for unlimited bandwidth. Which I REALLY want if your basically paying the same as me and im getting a cap -.-

Yeah, they NOW charge me $2 every GB im over. and they only charge me the highest $60 now if I go over my cap. It use to be only $30 they would charge me and $1.5 every GB over.

I'm with Bell in Canada.. paying $65/month for internet. 25/7 mbps and 195 GB cap. I don't think it's all that bad, but seeing as how there are a lot of people that are getting much better deals, I am sad. ._.
