If you're only talking 1.5Mbps, sure, but modern DSL under the right conditions can go much faster than that. Not to mention these caps are usually COMBINED up/down, not just downstream traffic.

This... 3 people online pretty much all home waking hours at 12mbps?

And I game a lot.

Actually you'd be surprised how fast it gets used up. Download some movies, stream some video, play multiplayer online, talk on voip. Even at 1.3Mbps down/.5 up I go well over 400GB / month by myself.

. Our new plan addresses another concern: customers strongly believe that only those who use the most bandwidth should pay more than those who don't use as much. That's exactly what this does – and again, 98% of our customers will not be impacted by this.
1. Who the hell would think this?
2. This is like saying "well, if it makes you feel better, I'm raising the cost of your neighbors internet, but your cost stays the same!" This doesn't even make sense. Do customers like seeing other customers suffer or something?

The problem is that the internet advances quite rapidly, yet the cap remains fixed. Eventually we'll be consuming 20gb per day. Over time users will get closer and closer to reaching that cap until they eventually start going over.

10 years ago we were concerned with hundreds of MB, not GB.

Quite easy actually. Sadly when I moved in AT&T's 6Mb/s DSL was the only real option available in my area. If I can find a suitable replacement I'm definitely moving to a different provider. The question is, what are our options if you want a fully uncapped connection?

EDIT: I really love the numbers AT&T are throwing around! "98% of our customers will not be impacted". Or, "It will only impact two percent of consumers who use a disproportionate amount of bandwidth". I can't get over this. What's happening is they see a spike in internet usage, since digital media is becoming exceedingly popular, and want collect on it.

If that is yours you need to go back use a spell checker.

If they implement a broadband cap, then I'll implement a new ISP. Simple.

If I pay for a rate, give me a rate, if I wanted a data limit id ask to pay per GB but I don't want that... thus the no smart phone plan.

PS I surpass my transfer limit most months and haven't heard a word yet from them... but as soon as I do I am jumping service I am paying too much for this service and I hate my comcast cable ever since they went digital.
That's powerboost. First 25mb of a file downloads at around 2x your plan's speed, the rest is back to normal. One way i counter this is to download stuff off usenet where files are broken up into smaller pieces

But its not 25mb, it'll spike for the first second or 2, then level off at pretty much the 1.0MB and often it'll not let me above the mid 900's.
