The real effect of bandwidth caps on fibre broadband

A gushing article about PlusNet's FTTC "up to 40Mb/s" service reveals that it is capped at 40GB/month. Hmm, so 8000seconds at "up to" full speed (sic).
That's just over 2 hours. A month.
Canadians don't know how lucky they are (through Michael Geist) - or BT broadband users.
UPDATE: Its worth noting that the OECD stats on minutes to reach monthly bitcap would put PlusNet in the bottom third - but the stats used are from 2008, and one hopes history is demonstrating evolution rather than retardation.
