Re: Applications are the future
They may for a while--but they'll switch back--but what you have noted is another byproduct of the decision by the FCC not withstanding the spint the FCC tried to promluigate.    It is profoundly challenging no doubt--as I hope to see enterprising solutions at hand to help transform it .

Re: APIs and Networks
@Bayte:  we have debated the efficacy of satellittes throughout our deliberations here.  Is it that prevalent in Canada?  Will it ever be?

Re: Applications are the future
@batye - this is one of my worst fears. Unforunately. I am so glad that we cut the cord, and I would hate to ever go back to cable. But data caps are certainly something that would more than likely send me back. I have  feeling the companies know this. And it may happen, whether I want it to or not.

@mhhf1ve yes, but in Canada we got from bad to worst as most ISP keep doing data caps more and more...

That's precisely why the data caps are becoming a bigger trend. More and more users are downloading video apps, but the pipe-owners (wired or wireless) aren't making the same $$$ on this video traffic.

Re: Applications are the future
@mhhf1ve - I fear you're right. Especially since people are cutting the cord more frequently. It only makes sense that the powers-that-be wouldn't want to lose their profit from people choosing to to stop getting cable. The whole thing is pretty frustrating to me, but I guess I have no control over it either.

This sounds good in theory but what is the cost to consumers. "Such capabilities would allow customers to configure bandwidth requirements or ensure networks can cope with heavy use of ERP systems at certain times of the year."

There are usually only 2 or 3 internet companies in most states that provide quality service. Consumers will be forced to continue to use these companies as technology grows and consumers gain access to more features and services.

Too late. AT&T and Comcast are both moving in that direction, and I'm sure Verizon will, too.

Mobile is basically a lost cause on data caps. Everyone already accepts either data caps on mobile or a pay as you go plan. It would not be shocking for these plans to take over the wired broadband market, too.

Re: Applications are the future
@elizabethv - "The ability to have WiFi is a financial savior for most of us."

I realized this more than ever as a traveled coast-to-coast the last two weeks.  When wifi wasn't available I had to rely on my cellular connection and racked up 5 or 6 overage charges to my account.  I wasn't happy about it - sometimes I couldn't avoid it, other times it was my own fault for not realizing I wasn't actually connected to wifi at all even though I had it set to autoconnect.  Lessons learned the hard way.
