Here is a conundrum for you Cimm. What happens if they continually speed up the connections but keep these lower or lowering data caps? If an ISP does this, you might have all of the speed you want but you will hit this datacap sooner and sooner with all of our rich video media.

Honestly, I would dig my own trench and fiber with a group of friends and neighbors to a colocation and pay some company to do the transport of the data. Wonder if I could get around these stupid rules and caps this way......
