Oh no... how am I going to complete my collection of every TV show, movie, and music album I'll never watch?
I might not even be able to torrent the all the latest games or the Office 2010 and Windows 7 and the Adobe CS5 Master Collection (who would even want the "lesser" versions?).
...Hmm? Am I missing something? Oh. Maybe the latest Ubuntu, LibreOffice, and other open source software. I guess.
I sometimes check them out. When I get around to them.
gotta love going backwards....
Boo hoo! Poor Americans
I live in a first world country and no one, repeat, no one has ever even been given the option of having those kind of download caps. Ours are mostly below that, with either a lowering of speed cap (to like 64Kb/s or similar) or some ridiculous $ per Megabyte over cap.
There are other places then US, Pakistan or Burkina Faso
You are more then welcome to visit Sweden.
100/100Mbit quite common, no caps what so ever,
Download what you want, when you want.
You just gotta love those companies stealing your money don't you? This is ridiculous. I pay for my internet usage, I don't pay to be limited.
I pay for it too, and I don't pay to be limited by johnny next door downloading every movie he can get his hands on, bogging down the system. If you read the article, the big issue they are running into is QoS for people across the board. When 2% of the population is taking up 20% of the resources, there is a problem.
