1.) Limit bandwidth / total GB usage. Costs don't have to increase for customers.
2.) Don't limit bandwidth or usage, but charge per GB. Costs don't have to increase for most customers.
3.) Upgrade network, no restrictions for customers, costs increase for customers.

I'm guessing a combination of all three might happen.

Even better -simply ban "copper", and force the ISPs to go fiber optic direct to house. That would eliminate sad sack "solutions", like ADSL that was always garbage, and allow for some real progress. Once there is fiber optic, and each optic element has over 100Gb/s of bandwidth - the whole capping and throttling become academic.

They could even impose a massive fine for any corporate wanker that makes the allusion that torrents are somehow equivalent to piracy. Torrents are nothing more than a download protocol - no different than uucp, xmodem, ftp, HttpGet or whatever. If they want to make an allusion - they can simply discuss how corrupted their corporate CEOs are, living the high life on their giant yachts, eating caviar on their toast, and so on; while their companies continue to issue lies and engage in fraud, like advertising that with their service, you can actually watch movies on their crummy connection.

The FCC would improve if they actually appointed people that actually knew anything about say, communications - even if they just had an intro high school course that scratched the surface of how a transistor works. Too many of the appointees are just some politico glad handlers, and all they do is screw things up big time. At least the US has the FCC - because they are slightly more competient than the losers we are stuck with on the CRTC here in Canada.

How many times does this happen before people learn that you want better you need to make competition possible.

Also, don't just blame the CEO as they are not the only one responsible. Include the board the and the other Cxxes. The CEO sucks because they are the one that the others can dump everything on when crap hits the fan.

So if we want better prices and service we need to bring in more competition in America's network industry.

I don't really get where you're coming from in fact i don't really care but what you're saying is not only upsetting to me it should be upsetting to you since it clearly shows that you're living a north korean way of life, since everything you said points toward that you're living a corridor existance of a life in eternal mental darkness and no will to find out the "evil" truth from the countries across the border.

Yeah i just had to get that out of my system
theres no socialistic tendencies in this decision, none what so ever, if anything it's less market regulation and whoopy doo... get it?

That would be great if there was real competition among ISPs in most areas.

If he contacted you via PM, wouldn't it have been more appropriate to also respond via PM?

Yourselves. And we didn't just "let it happen", there's more to it than just that. And anyway, I've only lived here for a few years now - and it's only been getting better since.

I recommend everyone contacts their ISPs and have a similar conversation.
You'll really only end up talking to lowly tech support monkeys. They won't be much help here. No use harassing the poor folk who are just trying to get an income, you really need to go higher up.

This is what sucks. Every time I run a speedtest, I'm ready to throw my modem out the window, call ATT, and ***** out whoever picks up the phone into oblivion. The tech support people are regular people that are part of our "group" so I have trouble doing that though. I was about ready to murder somebody before a tech came to my house but he was totally cool and did everything for free and gave me his personal cell number even. Can't shoot the messenger.

I think you need to see a therapist. You are not going to die if your ISP decides to change the way it prices its service.
