fwiw in new orleans and metairie (subburb 8 minutes away), the "unlimited data" internet option needs to be updated as there are 2x real options:
ATT DSL - There is a data cap, im not sure of #
ATT FTTH (minor availability)- 1tb / mo data cap
Cox Cable - 1.25TB/mo (or +50$ extra, for unlimited data)
thanks
