It really wouldn't be that hard to reach the 500GB cap.
I'm pretty sure we have the 12Mbps line and the "Lite and Express Packages – 100 GB Threshold" and I go over it myself every month probably. I really hate it. I hate having to think "should I download this?".
Charter use to be my favorite ISP, but ever since this stupid cap stuff, I think I'll try for FiOS when I get my own. I mean, Networx says I'm at 76GB this month... Probably because of all the new games that have come out recently.
That 500GB limit must be knew, I could have sworn it was unlimited. I think they downgraded everything a bit ago. I also thought our cap was 250GB, because my cousin has the 18Mbps line and he I thought had a 500GB cap, but now it says he has the 250GB cap.
What I wonder is if they just don't tell us we go over the cap, because we've been with them for probably over 10 years now. Pretty much since we got cable Internet. The stupid cap ruined what I thought of as the best ISP. At least for Michigan.
I don't even get the purpose of the 60Mbps line. If you need that kind of speed, you are obviously downloading a lot and 500GB is not a lot, considering any kind of streaming is including.Edited by pLuhhmm - 11/13/11 at 12:51am
