You guys are luck you don't have a data cap. But every company wants an extra slice of the pie. So unless the government intervenes or the big 3 realize this could cost them money everyone will eventually have one. As to the comparison there is none. Home seems to run on a decent PS2 style at least graphically. As for social interaction I wouldn't know. I have a cap of 250 gigs a month and my moronic son doesn't get it that ISPs throttle your connection if they see you using torrents. So I am left out.
