Riiiight... because right now, most areas are lucky if they have 3 choices for internet, when in reality most of the time its 1 or 2. I'm not going to pretend to know what it costs/requires to start up an ISP, but seeing as how the competition is spead very thin between only a few huge companies, I think it probably borderlines on impossible. I seriously hope I am wrong though...
The reality is, most users don't even come close to needing an unlimited plan. I would say that even at best 75% of the people on this site perhaps might, but we are all the exception. Most of America streams a little Netflix, dad watches 7 mins of porn twice a week, and mom updates her facebook and looks for recipes or something. At the end of the month, that is nothing compared to a power user on this site... THAT is who the cable companies are looking at, not us.
