said by Chubbysumo:Name me some legitimate uses for downloading 32 TB a month? Even running 6 Netflix streams 24 hours a day all month uses only 10 TB. Running a dozen streams of Spotify premium which streams at 320 Kbps( Pandora maxes out at 192 kbps ) 24/7 uses only 1 TB a month. Having 4 PCs all running OnLive 24/7 would use 8 TB a month. Ok that's 19 TB a month. Not even close to 32 TB. said by nanaki333:
companies like comcast give everybody a flat cap rate. at least mediacom's caps scale with the package appropriately. ~1TB is not an unreasonable cap for someone who would get the 105Mb package.
at 105mbps, you can download 13.125MB/s. Thats 787MB per minute. Thats 47250MB per hour. thats 1107GB per day. Its possible to use over 32TB per month in download alone. At 105mbps, you can blow thru your entire cap in less than a day(counting upload). Since when is this a reasonable cap? since when is any cap reasonable? Its just a pure cash grab, and thats it. I use between 900GB and 2TB right now, with charters ultra100 tier(soft cap area).
