And they will gladly keep it that way if it means an extra buck.

Where I am the only option I have is comcast and its 250gb cap. I guarantee you that when fios finally reaches me, that cap will disappear with them making press releases like it would be something I should be thankful for.

First chance I get im giving comcast the finger. unless they give me a 50% off discount for a year. Highly unlikely but Im waiting patiently for fios either way and cant wait for the day.
