This guy, who goes by TheJeffsta wrote to a pile of ISP's asking about there plans for unlimited internet.

Three replied, mostly saying "not in the current future".  I think the rest have nothing different to say.

Yeah it is sad that unlimited don't exist anymore. But just like those unlimited txts allowance in the past, one or 2 fellas do manage to have it in them to abuse and misuse! Thus the rest of us suffer ... hmmm.

I would no try to blame a few for the changes make by corporates, on the problems of a few users.
Unlimited service is a way to 'get people in to door/get new users' then the corp blames a minority group (witch hunt).
Then the coprs change the biz model to make them a few more dollars, without them looking unfair.

I think caps are here for awhile, user pays, it's a system that works.
But saying that I was surprised when iHug did the unlimited dialup, so i may be surprised again.
