Congratulations.   I only use my computer for very limited reasons and then not every day - I rarely download videos unless it's about a funny dog so speed isn't my problem - it's I seem to be suddenly running out of data before my renewal date - something that just started happening the last few months after having account for 2 years.   I keep getting unasked for mandatory updates by Windows which I am told eats up my data.   Beginning to feel like a scam to get more money out of me since I only have a basic package......

That's cool. I hope you do get the high speeds. I was advised I would get high speeds with the 150 GB plan and 25 mgbs, however, I get much lower during peak hours 5 pm - 2 am! I'm getting between 3-15. Frustrating when I'm paying extra for the faster speeds. I'm hoping that the new updates they are talking about releasing soon will help. If I could have kept my previous DSL service I sure would have. It stinks having service that lags because they put too many people on one beam.  :-/.  I am sure I am in a different area than you so I hope you get the fast speeds!!

yeah i to hope so also :3 and yeah i tend to get lower also @>@ but yet... if your onto a certain beam that is like MOSTLY network congestions... then... that is why :/ but once when people go onto the new plan and so on you will mostly likely get your speeds back :3 BUT!!! DONT take my word on that part though aok??? ;3 so yeah i to hope i get MUCH faster speeds also :3

Video quality is going to be the main buffer with the new plans. The gold will top out at 820p attempts to stream higher will cause buffering and slow speeds so keep it in that range. A 4K TV may see a difference (if you threw money down for that you might want to not cut the cord as your cable/satellite provider can accommodate that resolution) but 820p is still pretty good. Just think of it now as video quality vs Data caps really. I think one is a better compromise than the other.

 I believe right now the plan is to say you MIGHT slow after going over 150GB but right now we don't anticipate it but if need be we may slow people a bit after they get past that number but for most of our customers that limit won't be hit until later in the billing cycle or at all.  Of course in the busier time of day like EVERY SINGLE PROVIDER OUT THERE speeds will go up and down.

 Hope you enjoy the new plan! We've been working on this for a long time and it was really hard to tell people exactly HOW things were about to get better. Now the cat is out of the bag we're just as excited as you guys are.

Yep but DTV has a nice automatic feature. I wanted to watch and On Demand HD movie, my DVR simply recorded it and made me wait to begin playback so that I would not see the buffering and pausing and, get a smooth playback-  nifty and, means Unlimited Silver - no problem if I want HD, just grab it the night before and, record it.

I think as long as you're not streaming it you can probably get the better quality since it's not pulling bandwidth. So downloaded items and previously recorded stuff should be OK. 

Deku I was just meaning the cat is out of the bag about the unlimited plans, we've been talking about those since summer so now we're excited it's out
