I see people going crazy over here, if they attempt to clamp down on the internet.....

Society's as a whole, always seem to let the unacceptable be the acceptable some time down the road.

philosophically speaking
I hope the foundation of America can handle an earthquake.

Because people feel helpless or unable to change things since the very few people who do change things only do it to benefit themselves or others around them. No one actually works for the people. Do you see any consumers in these talks/debates/meetings? Nope just the companies and FCC not the people who are paying for these services.

That's actually how ours looked for a while as I have a big family and they're streaming movies and what not all day long. I had to upgrade to Business class as a result to get rid of that cap.

I imagine they will look at average use per plan and keep that as the base cost. And then they will go up from there for people like us, and down for a few others.

It has always been like that. The prices have gone down heeeaaps though. I remember paying $79.95 for 25GB download limit at a speed of 1.5mbps.

I think some IPS's have started to come out with unlimited downloads, unsure of price though.

It appears to me that cable companies are heavily in favor of paying for usage. Otherwise they will just die. As we know, young people do give a **** about TV, it is all on the net. Since I moved to the USA in 2004 I have not bothered with owning a tv.
