Re: Usage based pricing is coming for good or ill

said by ISurfTooMuch:

And you can bet that, if people have unused data near the end of their billing cycle, they're sure as hell going to use it...unless caps are set so low that everyone goes over.

Unless they have "Rollover MBs", which I really doubt it.

I'm betting that the Internet will see much less usage if this crap passes. That means the ISP's won't have to upgrade anything anytime in the future and more money in their pocket.
