[Neowin] AT&T: "Our Users Wanted Data Caps" - Page 22  

post #211 of 216
Until AT&T starts capping my service.



I'll keep paying. If that updates one day to say I have x amount of GB's left I'll call and be reasonable. Play the supervisor game. If they still refuse the service will be canceled on the spot. The last payment to AT&T even if it was 29 days ago will be disputed for item received not as intended and I'll go on my marry way.

If enough of us do that then they will change. If we keep bending over and letting them stick it in us they will keep sticking and might even bring their buddies over.

EDIT: Don't bother responding, I'm out for the night.
Oh... kay... not really sure where that came from, but have a good night!

Not everywhere are there a slew of service providers, I'm sure for most, its ATT (or any other exclusive isp) or no internet, unless you're willing to pay the exuberant cost of satellite internet. A company doesn't have to be competitive when they know they are the only game in town.

You talk about Steam and Netflix using up all this bandwidth, but doesn't that tell you that you're spending too much time on the computer? Doesn't take a genius to figure that out. Hell, I'm a programmer and I'm on the computer AT MOST two hours a day. I don't bother with video games much (outside of Black Ops [greatest game ever!]) and I don't watch TV outside of a couple shows weekly. I do spend an inordinate amount of time in the gym, running, cycling, playing basketball, and doing other activities that allow me to leave the Cheetos & Mountain Dew infested desk (that I'm sure you have).

I've mentioned before my mother works at Nike as a marketing executive and they constantly hear people talking about the brand apparel and shoes costing too much. Well, guess what? It's not meant for everyone! If you want "unlimited", switch...that easy, kid. EDIT: http://www.payless.com

Also, reported for name calling.



They're not ripping us off. They're protecting their right to offer services at a fair and reasonable price. Do you honestly expect to receive high-speed UNLIMITED internet for the paltry $50 you spend a month on it? As for these ridiculous arguments about the rest of the world owning us, who cares? The speeds are ridiculously fast as they are and I wouldn't even notice a speed increase. I have ZERO stream buffering, no lag, no issues period.
So because YOU don't use 150GB's in a month anyone who could possibly actually use it is abusing the service and deserves to pay through the nose to get what used to be standard? Do you listen to yourself before you post? I am honestly amazed at the ignorance of your arguments. In Hong Kong you can get 200mbps internet for $88 and 100mbps for $48.50. You honestly don't see an issue with paying more for speeds 16x slower PLUS BEING CAPPED? You really don't see the issue here?

You do realize in korea and Japan they are planning on phasing out anything slower then 100mbps because they believe it is to slow right? And they still offer unlimited service along with even their 1gbps service right? And their service that is a good 20x faster then our average is around the same price right? Bandwidth has become ridiculously cheap and is still getting cheaper for ISPs to provide yet prices and speeds have stayed the same AND now they are adding caps so they can charge you even more.

I am honestly astounded people will defend companies like AT&T trying to squeeze every penny from their customers. Also stop trying to talk down to me, all it does is make your argument look weak(which it is.)I have no issue affording comcast's 50mbps service(250GB is much more reasonable and they don't really charge for overages, they just warn you if you go over to often.), it's the principle of the matter and the fact that the recent trend for the internet in north america has been to move backwords while most of the rest of the civilized world moves forward. Lastly I like how you continue to complain about name calling yet have a slew of name calling and Ad hominem throughout your entire post.
