Caps are because ISP's don't buy in enough bandwidth to the outside
world, it costs them money, and hits the bottom line. Also management
knowing existing users are locked into a yearly contract, they make it
difficult to leave, and prefer to spend on advertising rather than service
and customer satisfaction.


That's not true. Caps are required because electricity is relatively cheap
and the only thing other than the cost of broadband subscription that stops
the user from constantly downloading. If the cost of electricity was like
the cost of petrol put in a car, then users would be more reasonable with
their usage. However, because it is perceived that other than bandwith
speed / time limitations there are no other realistic overhead costs it,
like everything else, is abused.

This argument is so full of holes its hard to know where to begin. In
fact its not even worth trying. Lets just say its nonsense and stop
there.
