My case for metered billing is that it encourages infrastructure investment. What incentive does Comcast have to invest in its infrastructure when you pay them a flat fee each month no matter how much you use... (well, up to 250GB that is)....
And exactly how does it encourage investment in infrastructure? Is there any guarantee that any of these overages will go directly to infrastructure upgrades?
Will my bill go down from where it is now? Can grandma get a 5 gig plan for $10 monthly? Metered billing only works when the pricing starts out with actual cost to provide service. And even if I'm not a cable subscriber, I still have a wire in the ground. It does not cost them much to provide service.
