QOTD: How Much Would You Pay for Uncapped Net?

With all the commotion circling around Time Warner Cable and other companies, it's no surprise that customers and enthusiasts are up in arms over connection caps.

Because of the improvements--although slow--we've had over the years, many great services have popped online, and people are doing many things online today then was even thought possible a decade ago. But now, net connection capping threatens to turn back time and put things like streaming, cloud computing, rich media services, game/software publishing and other content into slow motion.

The question of the day is: How much are you willing to pay for an uncapped connection?

    I lived in Korea for the longest time. ~$35 for 100mbps parallel connection please?

    Haha, returning back to reality, the price really depends on speed, but if there were two packages offering capped and uncapped... it would still depend on how capped the capped package is.

    For example, I wouldn't pay much more for 250gb vs uncapped, whereas 20gb vs uncapped would pull about another thirty $$$ a month from my wallet.

    30$ with speeds nearing 3 mbps which is what I currently have and as a gamer is more than enough.

    That aside I don't mind paying around 50$ for higher speeds ( 20 mbps perhaps ? ) if I ever find myself with a need for it.

  • I see no reason why I should have to pay any extra than the $50 a month I already pay, frankly. As soon as FIOS comes to my area, I'm upgrading...

    I'd rather have them slow down the speed rather than restrict the bandwidth cap. We have Comcast in Florida and we have 10 Mbs download. I would go back to 3-6 Mbs and not worry about how much I download.

    But again, we are paying $60/mo and that's not enough??

    I have uncapped net at 20 Mbit download / 4 Mbit upload for 14 Euro per month (that is 20 bucks for americans ;)) ... The best part is that I could get it cheaper (around 12 Euro), but I like my ISP because they provide near the limit speeds and no connection drops in games.

    Why should I be punished if I subscribe to both cable T.V. and cable internet? I could see putting a cap on subscribers that don't have T.V.
