Hello. Due to this thread discussing the arrival of a new VMWare Fusion version and some comments mentioning the existence of download caps by some ISPs, I am interested in discussing this "feature". To start I quote several comments from that thread, though the Multi Quote feature of Xenforo only lets me multi-quote five posts and opens additional REPLY TO THREAD windows when pressing more MULTI QUOTE buttons, I have limited myself. I currently have to reside near Berlin in Germany, it is a moderately big city, for Europe's standard it is big. I can, with my current plan, which is an older one, download all the stuff I want, at okay speeds (5MB/s down, thus I can download 12 PB of data per month, theoretically. The most I got was around 500 GB maybe, when I had to exchange some big video files back and forth. A newer plan limits one to 300 GB, still plenty most of the time. Why do you think, some ISPs offer download caps? Is such a limit necessary due to physical restrictions? Does more data wear down the copper cables? Or do ISP have to pay for data somehow?
