I'd much prefer a ISP model with slower speeds that remain consistent and your bandwidth cap is your speed times amount of time in a month.

As of right now I have a significantly larger need for more bandwidth than higher speeds. I'd rather 10/1 with a 500gb cap than 70/5 with a 120gb cap.
See... this is where I disagree.... I only download around 60 G / month but when I want to download either a steam game or a large driver I want it to dowload fast so the higher speed and reasonably low bandwidth cap works for me.
