AT&T's previously announced bandwidth caps for broadband customers have gone into effect today.
Horrible news. I'm not an AT&T customer, but I've got no doubt that it's only a matter of time before this cancer spreads to Time Warner, the ISP I've been stuck with for many years. I know Time Warner was experimenting with 40gb/mo caps several years ago in Texas, but since it never caught on I just assumed it didn't go well. Google's ultra-high speed service can't come fast enough.
The Man is really cramping our style bro.
They are. I'd burn through 150gb easy. Maybe not by myself, but I don't live by myself. I'm not even the only torrent user in the house. 3 people use Netflix streaming as well. We probably burn through 200 - 400gb/mo. People utilizing clouds and offering media streaming services should be lobbying heavily against this.
WTF, this is so stupid. I'm with time warner too, used to be with ATT. man wtf really, >:|
I was considering switching to AT&T a few months ago, too. Really glad I didn't.
I will never use AT&T ever this is the worst...
when I switched they said they went doing a Data cap, well wouldn't you know, 6 months in.... Fuck ATT
