Yours was what 5Mbps down before with a 30GB cap?

I guess people are using all that 30GB so [sarcasm]cut out that silliness and raise the speed and cut the usage to make money on overages... YAHOOOOOO!!!!!!

Well at least you don't have the problems like Hughesnet U.S.A. has. The problems seems to be they can't traffic control to get up to the 12Mbps max speeds(6Mbps to 8Mbps maxed in some areas) and probably don't have enough bandwidth to get out of the gateways to the Internets.

In Australia they are spending $1 billion Australian dollars for two KA band satellites for 2015 launch.
Criticisms persist a year after NBN Co decided to procure two multimillion-dollar Ka-band satellites, but the government-funded company continues to defend its decision, claiming that it was vital to its long-term satellite National Broadband Network (NBN) strategy.
Have and have-nots.....Patch patch patch patch......

Meanwhile it looks like the next X-box and other soon to be shitty game consoles will require an always on Internet connection to play any game(even single player).
Microsoft won't confirm that its next video game console will require a constant broadband connection, but at least one employee will go to great lengths to defend it. This could prove problematic, as according to the Federal Communications Commission's latest report, American broadband is not nearly as reliable as he claims.

The "always-online" model of gameplay (where users must be on the Internet at all times, even in single-player games) is a risky proposition for anything except dedicated online games (like "World of Warcraft"). However, Microsoft may want to build its entire next console on this paradigm. This strategy could save Microsoft a lot of money, as tying each user to a single copy of the game makes piracy impossible and could even prohibit practices like buying used games or borrowing games from friends.

The latest "always-online" debate began Friday morning (April 5) with Adam Orth, a creative director at Microsoft. "Sorry," tweeted Orth, "I don't get the drama around having an 'always on' console. Every device is 'always on.' That's the world we live in." He closed the tweet with a #dealwithit hashtag, which began trending soon afterwards.
Its been said before... When city people with a 100Mbps connection program gaming systems and games for other people who might only have a 1Mbps connection, less fortunate people curse and swear and the digital divide increases almost monthly.
