[Wall Street Journal] ISP's to possibly charge per GB (Update: 12/23/2010) - Page 16  

post #151 of 255
If comcast starts doing charges per GB, there is going to be a battle alright.
My house uses 500gb of bandwidth a month, per GB is going to kill us lol

This makes it impossible to operate any type of data oriented business off of a private connection.

You people in Canada , new Zealand, Australia should be ashamed of your self's for letting this happen.

What makes America unique is that it has 1 foundation to stand on that people weren't divided on.
Aka freedom.In other places you have alot of divide on things.....

I'm glad I'm on with Verizon Fios because comcast put into place about a year or so ago the 200gb "fair use" limit a month.

And also, you better believe that if I had to pay more for "extra bandwidth" being used I'd take advantage of all the open wireless connections around me for sure.

Technically speaking, isn't it against most ISP's terms of service to operate a business data connection on a residential data plan anyway? Brings up a good point--will this possible pay-per-use apply to business plans as well?

Iam sure data plans would differ for businesses , but like i said. It makes it impossible to operate a data oriented business off of a private line.

Also at this rate this thread has grown in the past 24 hours is absolutely remarkable.

Maria Wilson>

Thank you for contacting Time Warner Cable. At the end of our chat you will be given the option of taking a brief survey. My name is Maria Wilson. Please give me a moment while I access your account.


Maria Wilson>

Hello! Good morning. Thank you for waiting.


dustin_>

hello


dustin_>

I have a question


Maria Wilson>

Could you please elaborate on this issue?


dustin_>

does timewarner plan on letting the fcc regulate their connections?


dustin_>

as other countries such as Australia, new Zealand , Canada already pay for extra data usage.


Maria Wilson>

Are you referring to computer upload and download?


dustin_>

download


dustin_>

Mr. Genachowski suggested that instead of selectively slowing certain traffic to cope with congestion, providers could consider charging consumers for how much data they consume. That would be a departure from the flat monthly fees consumers pay now for Web access.

These people see it as a job. Be a computer guy and most places wont know what you are talking about in specifics. Be a car guy and you'll probably "out knowledge" the dealership you're buying a car from. The list can go on. It is simple. Most people don't have the worries we do. We are a tiny minority. They read off a script and get paid an hourly wage. They don't know anything but what the boss tells them most of the time.
