Congressman Unveils Bill to Fight ISP Caps

Quote:
If you thought that the debacle over ISP net caps was just starting to boil, then you'll be even more surprised to hear that the issue has now landed on the front doors of Congress.

New York Congressman Eric Massa (D-NY) promised that he would put forth a bill called the "Broadband Internet Fairness Act" that would "prevent job killing broadband internet downloading caps," said Massa.


Time Warner Cabe is at the forefront of this heated issue. Because of a roll-out in New York state, many customers in the area have already canceled their TWC accounts and moved onto other services.

ISP caps are like one GIANT step back.

It is like when the internet first came out. This is very sad and I hope they don't do this.

The USA will be so far behind in broadband

This is ridiculous, the banner my ISP advertised with was "unlimited internet" when we got broadband. Of course that was before Comcast bought up the regional ISP. Now there is a 250gb cap, and we weren't alerted when this cap was put on. It's mostly my principal that's pissed.

could you imagine being capped on cable TV? Say you're watching the big game, but your kid watched cartoons all that morning, and in the middle of your game, times up ..... blackout!

Caps suck big time! I get it from my ISP and from 11:00 am to around 11:00 pm all torrents and emule activities are ridiculously slowed down, even slower than a 56k dialup conection. that's not what we pay our services for.
