    I live in a country where currently the best cap limit you can get is about 120GB/month for about $106 . They say its unlimited but the truth is once you bypass that limit your speed drops to 2mbs which is painfully slow in the world where you need 1.5GB to upgrade just 1 iOS device.


    What is your cap limit, for how much, and at what speed? Where do you live?

    Is this cap on a broadband home connection, or a mobile device plan?

    No cap because we went with the Comcast Business vs. one of their consumer plans.

    It’s a little more (for the same advertised speeds), but there’s a few perks that make it worth it. The aforementioned lack of a cap, no speed throttling/shaping, available static IPs (up to 8 I believe), dedicated support (truck here same day in many cases), and even though some of the infrastructure is shared, some of it upstream is not, resulting in better peaks and overall sustained throughput.

    :cool:

    My internet at home has a 350Gb limit on the 50/5 speed level.



    For lower speeds they have a 250Gb limit, and for higher it is 450Gb or more depending on just how much higher you go.

    No cap on my current 12/1 connection. Also no cap on the 100/20 that gets installed next month, or the 200/200 that I can boost it to :)

    I have CenturyLink DSL and so far I have never encountered a limit. One month, I filled up an entire 1TB drive with torrents.

    I have the 40/5 speeds but my modem indicates and my download speeds are actually 50/5. Today my speeds were reaching towards 60.

    Together with my landline, I am paying $67.

    No Cap, $45 a month. 125/15 in Houston, TX through Comcast

    They claim to have a "Fair usage policy" but I have never encountered it, my usage chart is over 2TB every month

    Luckily so far ISPs haven't imposed any hard caps on domestic internet access here in the US, or least where I live in the Boston area. I work from home, so I'd be using up a lot of that quota if that was case.

    24mbit down/1500kbs up ADSL, realistically it's 8mbit/1500kbs and 200GB cap space per month counting both up and down stream and honestly, thats 6.5mbit after syncing. I hate Australia :mad:

    Unlimited. Unfortunately my area cannot get the 2Mbps I pay for and on a really good day I'm lucky if I get 128Kbps.

    I have an unlimited 80Mb/20Mb connection for $30/month - I live in the UK. I use a residential account with a mass market ISP (Plusnet), typically I use around 350GB/month, sometimes 600-700GB/month(all legal!) and so far they haven't complained.

    I have 80Gb cap limit, 30up, 10 down for a low price of $50. :roll eyes:

    I can go to the other one which is more or less the same.

    I’m in the Southeast US (east coast of Florida), and the Biz Class is $99/month for a spec’ed 50/10, and my throughput is generally ~58/~12. I work out of the homestead, so the better support, etc., is worth the $20 or so difference vs. the consumer product.


    Our old AT&T account had a cap (I believe it was 150GB) that got hit for a charge the second time it happened (the first time we just got an email warning). I wound up getting that waved since we had been a long time customer, then we actually switched a month or two later.

    A friend of mine in the Atlanta area regularly gets dinged with overage fees for consumer Comcast (house of 4, home office, the whole family are high volume data consumers). He’s a good candidate for Biz Class!

    and here I am paying $100 and worried about downloading a 7GB file. I am seriously jealous of many people here.

    technically speaking I pay around $1/GB . So if I download an HD movie it really costs me +$2 or so over the price I pay for it, given that I stream/download it once. It will cost another $2 if I download it again

    You are even in a worse situation than I am. Where do you live?
