There are recent discussions in Germany: Triggered by biggest German telecommunications service provider volume caps shall be introduced for regular DSL internet contracts.

I would like to keep an eye on this movement in this developing post. Especially interesting: what is the current status and which big telecom providers plan to introduce caps.


  • Kabel Deutschland
  • Already uses caps
  • Details: If a user loads more than 10 GB per day, then the bandwidth for file sharing use cases (peer to peer file sharing and share hosting file sharing) will be reduced for the rest of the day to 100 KBit/s
  • Introduction: currently the cap is in place with a daily allowance of 60 GB – the strict 10 GB rule will be rolled out soon
  • Source: http://www.kabeldeutschland.de/internet-telefon/
  • Additionally – there are reports that the overall bandwidth of Kabel Deutschland gets reduced unless a speed testing site is opened, source: http://stadt-bremerhaven.de/kabel-deutschland-mit-absichtlicher-handbremse/
