Maybe it'll work out for the best that there is a download limit.
It's unfair to expect them to make a business work on unlimited
downloads, especially at that kind of bandwidth. 3GB a month is 100Mb
a day. That's more than enough for anyone. I think it's fair that
people who download more than this should pay more.
I've seen Chorus wireless in action in Limerick. Very very
impressive. I've seen 44x300 medium definition divxs streaming at
about twice the rate necessary for flicker free display. And this was
over microwave. Cable modems can go much higher.
More importantly the ping times are very low. Playing quake3 on
barrysworld.co.uk was so cool.
Of course, if they finally get things up and running properly, we'll
have all kinds of fun with network saturation and bandwith sharing,
but sure, that's the way these things work out.
