I know it'll never happen, but it would be great to see data caps that are more in line with what land-line telecoms offer. I think the price points we see with the current plans are high, but I understand the cost incurred by setting up a satellite ISP. I personally wouldn't mind the bill if I felt like I was getting a reasonable return on my money, but I'm not making it through an entire month without slowdowns because I ran over my data cap. We are having to forgo streaming movies, downloading music, and other modern usages so we don't hit the data cap and then we are slowed down to dial-up speeds for the rest of the month. If we can't do those things anyway, why not just stay with dial-up? It's MUCH cheaper.
Here is something I just thought about that very much applies to the whole situation. What good is a Ferrari if it only holds a cup of gas? I sure feel like I'm paying a Ferrari price tag.
