Note: Comcast has announced they are capping at 250gig a month.

As for digital distribution goes, I'd love to move from cd/dvd's to that, if I could only find the stuff I want to watch in my region. eg: I like some British shows that are not availible here.
And if you pay extra for Xtreme-1 Shaw Cable, you get a 100GB/month limit Like me
