Re: Caps..
It is absolutely a financial mechanism and not necessarily bad on principle... if there is a competitive environment. I'd really like to see some more solutions dealing with peak broadband usage where there is congestion. Or perhaps, just more discussion of them. It's probably time to review network management practices.

I think the conversation over whether caps are high enough obscures the fact that they're not financially or technically necessary in the first place. They are a glorified price hike on uncompetitive broadband markets. With the added potential for abuse in order to hamstring competitors like Layer3 simultaneously by making streaming more expensive, and by zero rating the incumbent's TV service..
