Wired internet providers should not even be thinking about caps below the 250
GB/mo point.  Neither of these example speeds can even reach that level, so if
you feel the need to cap you are doing it wrong and should rethink your
business model.

Why? It's a perfectly reasonable business model - it allows you to skimp on
upstream provisioning if on any given day15/16th of your users are at low/zero
bandwidth due to hitting their cap *and* allows you to upsell bigger caps.  The
only downside is that if you do this, you'll only get away with it for like 36
hours before public outrage makes the local public service commission step in
with the big hammers and make you behave.

Oh, wait...
