Could really suck, then on the other hand could be very good. Depending on the price of the plans, you could end up saving $10/mo from this.

****...I used to have Adelphia, but Time Warner bought them out. With all the torrents I use, a bandwidth cap would be horrible. I'd definitely switch to FiOS if this happened, we should have FiOS available soon.

A lot of companies have limits on the amount of bandwith you can use. Thats nothing new.

Correct, different companies. Time Warner Cable is a different entity then Cablevision.

It would be interesting to see how that plays out with all the different speed offerings too... I'd wanna know more info before I get too mad.
