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.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

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.
