Some slashdotters here are suggesting that bandwidth limits are meaningless and that all internet connections should be unlimited.

Problems.

The ISP themselves are paying by the terabytes.
The ISPs that provide uncapped services are marketed for the masses, meaning that the low-usage majority subsidise the bandwidth-hogging minority.
Certain ISPs that provide unlimited plans that we have upheld to be the shining proof of bandwidth limits being meaningless, are slowly starting to switch to caps.

The fact is that our average data usage has gone up, while no groundbreaking innovation has crept up in the sub-marine cables that connect us all.
When the usage goes up but the cost stays the same, you MUST change your business strategy.

FORTH IF HONK THEN
