How the hell do people stream so much when the highest data cap is 250GB?

Given you can go past that but you have to pay extra.

If I had a cap... I probably wouldn't have the internet, it'd be too expensive lol.

Leaving Twitch on for a few days will easily chew through a 250GB datacap.

I went over Charter's 250GB datacap by over 700+GB leaving AGDQ 2014 on the entire steam.

Charter Security called me about that, but I told them I was too busy donating to the Prevent Cancer Foundation to care.

I just go over my limit when needed.

My ISP only gets angry if you go over it 3 times in a row, and if its from torrenting.
If you exceed it from watching netflix or something, they are fine with it.
No additional charges.

Good thing too, my folks have internet from another ISP that has similar rules. If you go over the limit, they just reduce your speed.
They have a 10gb limit and watch netflix almost non stop. I checked their usage in December last year, they used almost 500 gigs.
