Data cap: how do you live with it

#41masterpaul666Posted 1/19/2014 4:46:50 PM
I got 300gb.

I watch netflix roughly 4-6 hours a day, spend the rest on skype or sleeping. I've never once gotten over the limit. Unless you're actively loading stuff, 300gb is quite a whole lot.

I'm an American, my freedoms are limitless just like my internet usage.


If you're so free try going somewhere without money.

I have a 125GB limit and I rarely use it all. All I do is download games, browse the internet, browse YouTube, and stream Netflix; I have to splurge by trying to download HD movies or large games before I come anywhere near to using it all

The cap sucks, but I'm not the type of user who downloads huge files too often so it's not too difficult to portion my internet usage over the course of a month.

I don't know what my cap is because I've never reached it.

I avoided digital distribution and had to carefully ration my usage. With 60GB a month between four people, even YouTube was a heavy consideration on whether or not it was worth it.

Have a 100 gb limit. Probably going to get no limit once I go with a better company when I move. I only download a few major games per month. Certain games I haven't bothered with because they are too large. Rage for example. I can get it, but it would be 25-30% of my monthly cap.

I don't have a cap, I download whatever I want. I'm downloading right now 5 seasons of The Wire and 2 seasons of Sherlock.

I just checked my router:

System Up Time : 19 days, 3 hours, 38 mins, 39 secs
Data Usage : 648.14 GB


ftw.

I live in a household with 2 others and a brother who occasionally comes over and torrents stuff. We've never gone over 90 GB a month.

I don't understand how people use so much bandwidth.

Apparently you have been living under a rock for the past 5 years as Americans do not have limitless freedoms. Not by a long shot.

Another person with Comcast and no data limit. How widespread is this, especially across big providers? I know in my area it's Comcast or nothing and where my parents live it's Verizon or nothing. Neither has a data cap but since both have a complete monopoly on broadband Internet in the entire regions, it would certainly suck if that became a thing.
