Oh, didn't know they took it off. I heard Comcast doesn't really shut you down if you go over 250GB either, they just warn you if you go way over frequently. At least they don't charge a $10 per 50GB overage...

True.

Or get Comcast Business and don't worry about caps ever again.

Heres the thing I cant get... WHY... I know more and more people are using the internet and consuming more bandwith, but technology and servers are getting better and better so they can handle more and more bandwith, this just seems like a way for ATT to not have to upgrade their servers to handle more and charge people who use the internet alot a premium price just to do so.

The only way I can see it to complain to ATT, threaten to switch over, and maybe a class action suit. They need to learn no-one wants this and/or need this cap implemented, other companies are doing just fine with unlimited bandwith, so is att because they can now just charge more for it

This kind of thing is so disgusting. It seems he is referring to poll that was conducted asking if the people who use the most bandwidth should be charged more. If they had rather asked people if they wanted their previously unlimited Internet to become capped with overage charges you'd get a much different answer.

Honestly as long they charged people who downloaded less data less money then I wouldn't mind so much but all they are doing is charging moderate to heavy users more without taking any burden off the people who use less. Which goes to show you that the caps are purely a revenue boosting tool.

in my eyes it is a tool for more income. they are blaming "congestion" and it only affects 2% of the people. ya right. even if it was "congestion" it would be on their end as dsl isn't like cable where amount of peers on dosn't slow down their internet.

thing is, i gather it is out of necessity - as i can gather the network IS overloaded and oversubscrived. they just don't want to upgrade though
