[Neowin] AT&T: "Our Users Wanted Data Caps" - Page 19  

post #181 of 216
It doesn't bother me, personally. I just got my Uverse a couple days ago. I don't torrent games or movies. 250GB is plenty. The cap will either help me or make no noticable difference. Plus, there is no 'cap'. You can download all day and night. You'll just get charged more.

Just keep bending over for Corporations, AT&T is relying on people to have the same passive attitude as you.

150Gb for DSL 250GB for Userve

I've always hated Comcast for their 250GB cap. However, I've gone over cap many times and they've never charged me an extra cent. This really sucks. I signed up for ATT DSL service 3 months ago for their $20/6.0mbps for 12 months. Which is a pretty good deal but now that I've found out about this cap I'd much rather switch back to Comcast and pay a little more and enjoy 12mbps.

ATT and Comcast sucks. *sigh*

I have ATT DSL. I have not heard anything about capping my internet. Do I need to do anything different? Or will they not allow me to use the internet once I hit a certain point? Or would I get a huge bill if I go way over?

Oh, NM, this kinda explains it pretty well.

I've investigated this for myself, and according to AT&T's cap site, I don't have a cap. I don't know if it is because I've been with them since they acquired SBC or what?

Super fast internet for 40-50 dollars a month at 6 MB per second!! I found this totally crap and I cant even get to the 150GB limit since its so stinking slow.

Ended up changing to time warner cable 15 MBps and cant be happier.

I called to cancel my service today because i had a $40 credit from last month. Every 6 months i would call and say if they didnt give me a better promotional price than $40 a month 6mbps when common sense says i can go to comcast for $29.99 for 15mpbs so they gave me $20 off for 6 months twice well for two months i was still paying $40 finally i got pissed talked to like a 3rd tier supervisor first regular customer rep than a team lead.....I've noticed their all brain washed and super proud of at&ts product.... anyhow when i called and cancelled they said why I said "Well I got 2.5x faster internet your company is charging me with more data, also I dont like companys that inpede progression" She said to me "well this is only going to effect 1% of users" I told her its going to effect more than that and were among the slowest speeds in western civilization and data usage is only going to get larger. oh yea and i also told her when they released a statement saying customers asked for I told her I didnt.
