    In the UK we have one wholesale provider and many ISPs. They buy the least amount of data they can get away with, in order to make a profit. They have limits on data and if you use more you move up a tariff. It's all a big con, because it isn't competition. There is no way round this issue, because one company owns it all, and the prices mean caps are necessary to stay in business. Therefore it throttles innovation, because people get bored. Waiting for pages to load cos they've been slowed down in the bottlenecks. Satellites are even worse, and even light users run out of data before the month is up.
