Besides the phones and game consoles, the crazy woman that lives in my house does commentary videos with an online friend. They send large files back and forth while editing and then one of them has to post the videos online.

I looked into Wave new highest level but the cap is still 300gb/mo. May have to set a cap in my router and charge her when she exceeds it.

I'm sure. But that's nothing else, no gaming, no Pandora etc... I can tell you I pretty much just use Netflix and hulu , that brings me to my cap. If my son is with me he games then I'm over.

What's the point of tiered speed then? So I can pay more and get to my cap quicker? 250 is not about service for cable companies its about money lost to people like me who refuse to pay for horrible cable programming, reruns and commercials, Period. If they bumped the cap to 350 you'd see no difference in your quality of service.

deleted my post, no point in it.

mods if you happen to see this, can we just close this never ending b**ch fest about internet caps that have been out since 14.4k days? lol this is a development site not a broadband review forum.

True, this discussion is a wee bit off-topic to Android development in general.
