Meanwhile, on the other side of the fence.....

Re: Meanwhile, on the other side of the fence.....

CL has abolished caps, as have other insane ISPs.   As a result, many of their subscribers can still enjoy absurdly fast speeds (I would posit almost no one needs 1000Mbps DL speeds, or even a third of that), but these users are destroying the internet for millions, and some of those come to this site to complain that tiny HN is to blame, when  it's the giants who are doing the damage. 

 

If they haven't done it yet, I hope streaming providers start seriously throttling streaming speeds.

I think they have.

They have in Europe, but I don't think they have here, or at least I haven't seen this. Then again, I haven't been following this trend. 

 

EDIT: a quick news check tells me it's just in the EU. I don't find anything about this being implemented here in the US. Yet.

Aw.  Those poor people.  I just don't know how they're surviving with 300-500Mbps speeds.

I know, right??  Who can do anything at those speeds?;P

 

EDIT: I bet their latency has taken a hit too, probably from 5ms to as much as 20ms.  The horror.
