Haven't I been saying this all along????

Bandwidth will limit downloads, this is just a new way for the companies to keep us from reaping the benefits of technology. In some ways, I understand, bandwidth costs the companies, but if you give me 3Mbps, it shouldn't have a cap on total downloads, it should be the rate you promised and nothing less. If I want to download video 24/7/365, then so what??? The provider guaranteed me a rate, I shouldn't be penalized for use unless the providers go to a per/meg fee......

Did I just really type that? This will be the new cell phone drama!

How many megs do you use???

Face it, if I thought of it, someone in corporate has as well.....
