Data Cap is Too Low

Why is it only 1280 GB? That's not much for a modern family of four. This cap is like a blast from the past of 15 years ago. I'm on a fiber to the prem connection so network bottlenecks should not be an issue. Competitors offer unlimited data on fiber but sadly I can't switch. So my router is unplugged and I'm on a hotspot. Forgot my thermostat needs the internet to get outside temperature and switch to gas it's been short cycling the heat pump all night.....

Pay $10 for every 50 GB overage? Pay twice the price for unlimited? No thanks. Oh! That looks like a money grab. I thought I saw a money grab, I did, I did. Probably will cancel and go back to fixed cellular. Less speed, higher price but no caps. Oh wait, even my local yocal fixed cell can offer service without caps? Yup....
