Which is probably what they want. Hmm tough campaign this year how can we gin up some money. I know lets propose a ridiculous restriction that would kill off some really big businesses. They will send us money not to do it. Brilliant.

Netflix is on it's own.

Hulu is owned by NBC which was purchased by Comcast they won't do a thing.

Grooveshark I never heard of and I doubt google would step in.

What about google's cloud idea? Or Microsoft?

Cloud is not going to work out with caps.

AT&T just introduced a cap, where was Google and Microsoft?

ISP's need to get their stuff together instead of milking their customers for every penny they have, but it'll never happen. Same thing with the oil companies raised prices due to "shortages" and still claiming record breaking profits. They are all the same everyone is crying that they are hurting, but their profits grow more and more each year (music industry, movie industry, game industry etc etc).

The 2nd phase in the master plan, once caps are in place and accepted by society, is to introduce 'waivers' for your cap. You'll be capped to a certain amount but they'll have unlimited availability of companies they contract with ( Google, MS, Hulu ) This will be their way to skate around Net Neutrality.

Netflix isn't owned by any major media company or telecom and are in direct competition.

That implies that using large amounts of data can only be achieved by torrenting illegal content.

Since when has the Corporatocracy ever cared about LOGIC?! All they care about is money.

1. Cap bandwidth
2. Charge overage
3. Give 'exceptions' to cap for their own versions of netflix
4. profit

Corporate america > citizens.

This sounds like a great deal for IPs that want to charge more, give less, and continue to reap profits while not upgrading anything.

Valve and all the other companies that offer games digital downloads need to do something about this....

Steam Sale = Bandwidth limit easily breached.

I'm pretty sure any digital distribution networks (such as Apple, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Google, Steam) would resist this move quite heavily. If ISPs want to alienate their customers, the content deliverers (above), and manage to destroy technological progress, I guess it is their prerogative, but I'm sure in the long term their profits will be lowered.
