    That's unsettling. Companies shouldn't be able to throttle the connection that you pay for. Seems like a very slippery slope.

    So, All this time, Internet providers assumed that customer will be using only a part of what they pay for? When there is a situation to use their limit, their struggling?

    It's like someone paying $10 worth of fuel and the pump assumes that you will use only $6 worth.

    It's more like they assume only a certain percentage of customers will be using their service to full extent at the same time.

    If for whatever reason the entire town/city would come to the gas station all at once, they would have just as much trouble providing their services to everyone.
