We all knew this time would come, and last week’s disturbing news that Time Warner would be testing bandwidth caps in Texas came as no surprise. But we never thought the limits would be so low. Granted, 5GB is the bottom of their estimates as to where they might place caps, but they shouldn’t even be thinking at that level. That amount of data would be gone in a snap for any heavy internet user; YouTube, streaming TV, iTunes, Flickr, and other things we need not mention would put you on their watch list as a potential pirate. They probably pass that info on to Homeland Security too, so you can expect a knock on your door.
