Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    And if this doesn’t give a clear reason why ISPs should stop this “capped” crap, the Internet is doomed.

    I live in a small town in the evenings my high speed internet is slowed to a crawl.
    because of the overload caused by people watching movies being streamed over the
    internet. the cable company said it would be a long time before they could update their
    lines to accommodate this load.
    now what help is cutting cable if it only slows me down.

    I don’t understand what the gripe is about when it comes to capped usage, well as far as cable is concerned, I have Comcast who has a 250Gb cap per month which you’ll never come close to exceeding and I DL movies/TV shows ect… Constantly,my speed never slows down, a steady 20Mbps+ on the other hand the 5Gb wireless cap implemented by the big 3 Att, Vz & Sprint is BS
