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
