    Default Bandwidth Caps


    So major issues that I have and wish to sound off on about bandwidth caps that are being talked about. This I believe is a bad way to go (great way for the networks, bad for applications and users). Although, this will be a GREAT thing for people that text a ton.

    The future folks say is that carriers will go to a strictly volume based network. Does that include nights and weekends too for bandwidth??

    A couple of friendly stats, a voice call, going off of some VoIP standards is at worst 80 kbps (kilo bits per second). A text message (regardless of size, unless you send multiple as one >160 characters) is 140 bytes. So a text message will just fly through as far as bandwidth.

    Other thoughts from folks out here?
