I was just curious as to how real the practice of capping a user's bandwidth actually is, or if it's only something that is seldomly, if at all, actually used. Is it realistic to think that a bandwidth cap could potentially be a root cause for slow service and connection drops? Thanks for the feedback :) .

Yes bandwidth capping is out there and yes alot of ISP's use it to limit their customers and allow for "tier type" pricing. Not only will you see bandwidth capping you will also notice from service providers that they will charge for "static" and "dynamic" services. So yes it is out there and ISPs do use it quite alot. One way to drive revenue.

Some ISPs are more flex than others.
