I’ve had this for seven years. I’m on liberty or whatever. So sick of this.

Then why don't you unsubscribe?  If I'm sick of something that doesn't work for me then it's time to go. Do you enjoy paying for something that you call Garbage?

You always have a choice.  Grow some and dump a company that you hate so much.  Or maybe you really don't hate it as much as your posts suggest. Your post about Africa suggests that you might like to exaggerate just a bit?

Houghsnet vs Exede. Equall crap. Those are my choices. So it doesn’t matter. I hate it more than my posts suggests. I can never get a download like YouTube to work with this speed.

It IS unlimited.  You aren't cut off.  Don't conflate possible slow downs with an inability to use the service.  Going by that notion there is no service on the planet that is unlimited, as there will always be a speed limit, no matter what the service is.  Even if you could use the current transatlantic communications cable all by yourself you'd still be limited to speeds of 3.2Tbps, which means it's not unlimited.  

In the context of this service, unlimited means you aren't cut off and one can still use the service.

unlimited in this context refers to the advertised speed/data limits.  I would call less than 256k an inability to use the service or "cut off".  Pages will not load properly, downloads will fail,  timeouts will occur.  Part of a page loading does not even come close to meaning "unlimited".  That is just dumb.  I have been watching this crazy internet "throttling thing" every since this "unlimited plan" came out.  All good at first, but now it seems that around 30gb for me and the throttling crap starts to happen.  Same thing every month.  One time I went over my 150gb limit.  bam...256k connection, no matter the time for the rest of the month.
