So because 5% of the people use up half the bandwidth, everyone else should now have to suffer?

People who subscribe who use the hell out of their internet aren't breaking any rules, they paid for the service, and they're choosing to use it.

I guess if every subscriber decided to go on massive 24/7 downloading sprees, they wouldn't be able to pull this BS because everyone would be billed like 1000$ a month and obviously no one would pay that.
Way too expensive

Maybe these knuckle heads should have been improving their backbone when they were using this as a cash cow instead of flushing money down the drain. So now they want the consumer to pay for their shortsightedness.

Well get our Premium package for $79.99 + $10.00 for extra websites you visit.
brilliant!

P.S: Our companies Web Server has 20GB of space, I do routine (read: weekly) backups of this at home. (Current usage is around 16GB) Add that to FTP upload/download to clients, and remote access from the outside (yes, home office), and you're not just keeping granny smith from looking at ten trillion pictures of her grandaughter on webshots, you're also limiting that GIGANTIC market of folks who've been enabled to work at home with the internet boom.

These are the same people who are:
commuting less by working at home
- saving the earth and the wallet
-relieving a bursting mass transit infrastructure(i'd be commuting to NYC, taking more trains
than needed until capital construction is complete)
eating less fast food since the option to throw together a sandwich or a salad is a few feet away
-saving body, and wallet
-not giving business to multination food empires
saving space; stopping overdevelopment
-the same space serves a dual purpose, as both a home and an office

The speed of the internet has only made opportunities like this more viable, as working through VPN is more and more akin in speed to being in an intranet environment.

We are now looking to reverse this? Is it such a horrible thing that a kid's father doesn't need to be at an office until 1AM working on a presentation every night when he can be home for dinner and work on it after? Wake up, TW.

HAAAAAY, Verizon, if you're reading this: Don't Even Think About It

You should go with TPG they have 150gigs for 69.99 although that's 40gigs peak + 110gigs off peak.

email sent to TWC... soon a physical mail



I can cap 5G in 1 day since i have like 5 computers connected to the internet in my house. 40G will be gone in a week or less. 100G will not even last me through the month.
