I agree. Usage caps, and crap upload speed make it a bit of a con.

Well, perhaps such speeds will make technologies like video on demand
possible, but I guess QoS is really required first. Perhaps it'll lead
to something more bandwidth greedy - like widespread 'vidcasts', or
just faster downloads.
