Blockbuster is probably paying AT&T to do this to kill Netflix

I just got UVerse 18Mbps service last month (because time warner in my area is worthless...10 Mbps down actually means less than 1 Mbps 90% of the time). I only have a 6-month contract with them, which means 2 months with the cap....we'll see how that goes. F'n douche bag ISP's...I'm sick of them. Just finished my year long battle with TWC to come into this ****...Mother F'ers.

I'm going starting a daily log of my internet usage. I'm really worried because my router only shows statistics from the last 32 days (since I started with U-Verse) and I calculated that I have used 672 GB. No real torrenting, just lots of web browsing, netflix, and gaming. I don't imagine that this number includes U-Verse TV data. We shall see how it goes.

ISP's Dont measure service in Bytes, they measure it in bits (which i think is total BS, makes it sound faster to confuse those of us who don't know the difference). 8 Bits is equal to 1 Byte so a 10Mbits/s service is equal to approx 1.2MBytes/s

Here a massive thread i started back on december about this issuie. I was the first to point this out on these forums. This is when government and buisness become one. This is just the start, the internet is about to be completly shat on.

People said lots of ugly things to me, but look who gets the last word....

Mr. Genachowski = FCC chairman

Quote:
Recently, 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.

U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison

Quote:
The “unreasonable discrimination” order would in effect establish that the FCC would have an approval portal that companies must pass through just to manage their day-to-day operations. For instance, if a provider notices that a small number of users are sharing huge file dumps that are leading to congestion on the network, it should have the right to slow down those connections in order to relieve the congestion for the vast majority of users.

I didn't mean my download speed is 1 MB/s I meant in speedtests I got between 0.5-1.0 Mbps instead of the advertised 10 Mbps I was paying for.

After monitoring my use for the past 4 hours (approx. 3 hrs of gaming w/ skype and my girlfriend browsing the web) I used 8472342534 bytes...or 7.8905 GB...yeah...almost 8 GB in 4 hours. I will never survive with a 250GB cap. I have used 682 GB in 32 days. No torrents, just normal gaming, browsing, skype, and netflix use.

Can you still be grandfathered into an unlimited plan if you already have one?

I don't th ink 13.33 hours is realistic...

There is no way in hell you could download 150 GB in anywhere close to 13 hours, no way...

3 MB/ Second would be your maximum bandwidth, and as we all know, the chances of you sustaining 3 MB/Second are slim, so you may get like 2 to 2.5 MB/ Second..

It would take you about 18 hours to pull down 150 GB...

Realistically..

Caps are retroactive, meaning applied to current customers without regards to how long you have had it, or what contract you signed however long ago...

You see it's in the agreement clause from the beginning, they reserve the rights to alter their agreement, legally too...
