Re: More Populist ISP Bashing from BBR

If things are that hard and that complex, then TWC should quit the broadband business and get out of the way. Their stockholders will thank them.
Most of us do have a choice its called going back to dialup

You can get it for 5 to 10 bucks a month and there is no limit on bandwidth transfer

Beside if you can't use it for video, and if all you do is check your email and surf the web little bandwidth is sufficient
Road Runner, ATT both can go to hell :|

And if you leave it running 24/7, you can download almost 15G/month which is 3 times TWC's lowest cap.

That's true... but most of us would probably use a lot less then that since all we gonna do with it is email and buy stuff online
with a slower connection it would be impossible to use 15gb in a month
if road runner want us to use a lot less then offer slower tier for a lot less

256/128kbps for 9.99 a month
512/256kbps for 14.99 a month
1mbps/384kbps for 19.99 a month

They don't want that, it won't make them good money and it will save the consumer lots of money

They want to gouge those high paying user a lot more then what they have already paid
That's 44.95 a month or 59.95 a month plus 1 dollar per GB

For 24.95 a month you're capped at 384k/128k for a mere 5gb pretty shitty matey
10gb at 44.95 a month
20gb at 59.95 a month
doubling that to 10 to 40gb is still pretty much the same crap with the same overage charges of 1 dollar per gb.
