Got a 4King big TV? Ready to stream lots of awesome video? Yeah, about that…

and don't forget the data caps

even with a faster pipe, you're still only good for 6 shows before your friendly neighborhood ISP says you've passed the data cap and are going to be throttled down to dial-up speeds or charged the equivalent of $5 a movie for "using more than your fair share, Komrade!"

Everyone talked up streaming, then took away our unlimited services. No service, not even a kumbaya world where somehow Google does not act like every corporate entity in human history and change its stripes once in control, offers large enough data plans at home to support current state of the art 4K or anything "next gen".
