    I am interested in knowing what Netflix and Hulu are doing about the caps. Even Oregin and Steam have to make a stand against this or their business model is out the door. Seems they are applying a wait and see attitude to this when they should be at the forefront of this issue.

    A bill in cogress to stop this? Wow Legislating morality is soo sooooo sad for America and its Corperate Economy.

    Whats new about that, morality has always been an issue with upper management.

    "Guest said:

    The point isn't the amount. The point is that it's wrong for them to pull in a bunch of customers with "unlimited data" and change the deal afterwards."

    This truly is the point- not how much bandwidth or data is used. When I signed up for AT&T (actually I merely attached myself to my husband's account), I got a very long, vague description of what "unlimited" data meant. I was not iPhone smart at the time and just figured my husband would know all about it. Not! It truly is deception on AT&T's part; even the clerk who helped me knew he couldn't come right out and explain that the advertisement was not true. This really stinks, and I really don't know what to do about it (other than change carriers after the contract is up.)
