    While 4K sounds awesome in theory, I don't see the application side from a video streaming perspective. I'm running on 100mb/s cable and full HD streams sometimes run into issues coming from Netflix. I can only imagine how painful a 4K stream would be on a bad day. Not to mention the need for a 4K display and the fact that such a high resolution would ruin the aesthetics of most sci-fi series and movies.

    I laughed when I read this. To call my ISP 'junk' is to suggest that there's something redeemable about their service.
  8. That's nothing compared to the pain of blowing your data cap allowance and triggering penalty fees on your monthly bills.
