Ah ha! Proof that seeding the ocean with iron causes earthquakes!
GB....hadn't had my coffee yet.
Well, it's not exactly a burst speed - I can run flat out at 3MB/s all day long. I see your point though - with the cap it amounts to a much slower overall rate if I want to stay off my limit.
Sorry guys...it was early and I hadn't had my coffee. I meant GB.
Oops...meant FCC, not FTC.
Yeah, my cable modem is stupid fast....only problem is, running full tilt I can go through my monthly bandwidth cap in eleven and a half hours.
Fortunately, for the moment, the overage cap is $50 so if you download a bunch some month you just say, "Woohoo, unlimited bandwidth." For example, in January I downloaded 750MB which put me 625MB over my cap and would have cost an extra $780. Ridiculous no? And now the CRTC (equivalent of FTC) has ruled that the major ISPs are allowed to pass usage based billing fees onto third party providers which means there will be no more unlimited plans and the billing cap will likely go away.
Basically, Rogers and Bell want you to watch their channels, not use Netflix, AppleTV, etc. And the wretched hive of scum and villany known as the CRTC is letting them do it.
Not much point in fast internet if you can't use it.
