Re: Bait and switch
"I agree, there always seems to be someone without manners or hesitations that tries to game the system and thinks it's cool."
"On the other hand companies usually can very easily identify these cases and just terminate the contract without harming the rest of their customers."
"Unlimited" means just that; a service with no limit. If a company offers an unlimited paid-for service, it needs to realise people will use that service as much as they see fit. For me personally, 75TB is way more data than I've ever had a need to store (not counting my physical Blu Ray collection etc. of course). But if I had paid for an unlimited service with that intention and spent months uploading it, I'd be pretty pissed off if I suddenly had to find an alternative.
Taking advantage of such a service is not gaming the system, and has nothing top do with manners. Cancelling contracts on a whim because a user has used an "ill-mannered" amount of data is bollocks.
If MS (and others) don't want people using more than 1TB of space, then how about they just sell a capped 1TB plan? They shouldn't try to drag people in with an "unlimited" one which actually has limits, or gets revoked down the line.
