said by BiggA:Caps don't even address congestion at a node. Congestion occurs during peak hours, and everyone watching youtube or listening to music in the evening is equally contributing to congestion. Someone downloading 4 TB of torrents at 3 AM isn't affecting the network in the slightest.
The thing is, their excuse is still fundamentally BS for not counting it against the caps, because the reason for caps is the limited bandwidth on the DOCSIS cable system, not in the core of the network. There is never an excuse for a lack of bandwidth in the core network, as they can always just add more fiber.
