I wouldn't (couldn't!!) use any of these guys for home internet. The caps are lousy (5 gb in most if not all cases).

Really? $#!++Â¥ DSL will have a cap, too?! F*** that! If all internet gets capped, it will have ceased it's usefulness. What kind of losers can Facebook all day? Moderate video usage will bust 2 or even 5 gb caps in under 2 weeks! Guess we'll have realized time travel as we all effectively go back to the frickin' 80's.

"Starting May 2, AT&T will limit DSL customers to 150 GB per month, and U-Verse fiber optics subscribers to 250 GB per month, according to DSL Reports. Overages, which cost $10 for each 50 GB, will only apply to customers who exceed their limits three times or more. If you're an AT&T home Internet subscriber, you should get a notice about the bandwidth caps by the end of this month."

wow. so glad I don't use AT&T for home Internet. It's precisely this kind of anti-consumer mindset that makes me wanna vote Democrat. :-/
