The plan is 500gb cap for 100/5 Fibre connection for $130 a month. No choice on the ISP (long story)

We pay a grand total of nothing a month. Work pays for it.

Right on cue, at 1am my full bandwidth is temporarily restored. Well, time to download Civ 5 before they throttle it again :-o

Infinite (well, ok, one guy got in trouble after using 77 TB).

I have verizon DSL, 7 mbps. It's not the fastest internet, but it's fast enough, and the fact that it's unlimited is a major reason I prefer it.

Costs around $35 I think?

I know there's comcast which offers like 20-50 mbps, but with a 300 GB cap....that seems to defeat the purpose. 300 GB is 10 GB a day, 10 GB a day is 4 hours of downloading on my current plan (2.7 GB/hour). Not that I download for 4 hours a day every day, but a major problem I have with these high speed plans is they're deceptive. They're like, ZOMG, look at how fast we made it....but then they actually punish you for using it. I'd rather wait a little longer for my download to be done. Not to mention, there aren't many games that I can't download in a reasonable time frame any more. I mean, I can just go to bed, leave my PC on downloading, wake up, and boom, 20-25 GB done. No problem. There are very few games that are actually larger than that. And let's face it, if I downloaded games that big on a regular basis any way, guess what, I just hit the cap, thereby sabotaging the convenience a faster internet plan brings.

I also just hate comcast's business practices in general. I don't think they can provide me reliable internet if their cable service is anything to go by (boxes breaking down every few months, sometimes being cut off without warning, etc.).

There's another cable company in my area, a local one, but apparently they have 90 GB caps...that just won't do at all.

My internet is cheap, unlimited, and fast enough for my purposes.


I work for Comcast, that cap isn't actually enforced, as long as you don't cross a tb or so they won't even pay attention to you.

$50/month for home phone and internet, 3/1, no cap.

95/75 atm at school though. Downloaded about 100 GB the first two days I had it and they didn't say anything. I honestly wonder what would happen if I just maxed it out for a day. 720 GB would be a bit excessive, though. I don't even have enough to download to eat all of that...

From what I've seen caps are far more common in Canada and Australia than the US.

I have 50MB/s downstream, 4MB/s up, no cap, costs me nothing (not stealing it, free for being a technician, I also get TiVo with 100% of cable channels for free, including all premiums).

Anyone who has an internet cap is an internet peasant.


There are people who can't afford uncapped you know. Not all countries offer uncapped services and in third world countries it can be very expensive.

That makes the US, Canada and Australia third world apparently. I've been all around Europe (including the poor eastern bloc) and I've never seen an ISP even offer capped internet. Pretty much everyone over there is using ADSL (24 down/1 up) at prices ranging around 25 US dollars per month.

I've only ever seen caps on internet intended for mobiles.
