What does this mean for users? The story quotes published estimates that "the lower-end 20GB/month limit would allow you to download about four HD movies a month before hitting your cap. The higher-end 150GB/month limit, in comparison, would allow for approximately 30 HD movie downloads, while a middle-of-the-road limit such as a 60GB/month scenario would provide bandwidth for 12 such streams."

In comparison, Comcast allows users 250 GB a month. Time Warner tested a 40 GB for $55 a month limit in Texas earlier this year.

While those numbers might seem sufficient for the average user's needs for now, many experts say that bandwidth needs will likely grow in the future. All that talk we've been having about cutting the cable or satellite and watching much of our TV and movie needs through our computers? Data limits could curb your ability to do that.

Is AT&T being stingy with its cap on bandwidth? Have these limits affected your Internet use? Are caps inevitable?
