Netflix Wants Annoying Data Caps To Be Illegal

There are no two ways about it, data caps suck. I hate data caps, even though I never come close to hitting my 2TB data cap and my ISP doesn't even enforce its data caps. I'm with Netflix on this, just get rid of data caps already and the world will be a better place.

In a letter sent to the Federal Communications Commission last week, Netflix said that the commission should consider banning data caps on wired internet connections and banning "low" data caps on mobile connections. "Data caps (especially low data caps) and usage based pricing discourage a consumer’s consumption of broadband and may impede the ability of some households to watch internet television in a manner and amount that they would like," Netflix writes.
