[Eng]AT&T will cap DSL and U-Verse internet - Page 25  

post #241 of 275
It's a good thing Bright House Networks will never do this.

Or rather they tried a few years ago and lost alot of money from customers dropping service which caused them to removed the cap.

So don't loose hope yet, if enough people switch providers they'll be forced to remove the cap.

3 MB/ Second would be your maximum bandwidth, and as we all know, the chances of you sustaining 3 MB/Second are slim, so you may get like 2 to 2.5 MB/ Second..

It would take you about 18 hours to pull down 150 GB...

Realistically..
Don't call me out on a worst case scenario... dude...

Damn, that really sucks. Seems like the one company that stays unlimited will get all the customers.

NA is going backward with Internet. It like saying lets limit people to drive only 200KM a month and this effects only 2%, if it effect such a small % why put the CAP in the first place.
