Re: Their own fault..
said by jjroysdon :Man, I hope that's not what you expect people to pay. If I were limited to only using my internet for the same set of features I had access to on dial-up, I'd expect to pay dial-up prices (ie. $10/month). There's no way in hell I'd pay beyond $20 a month if all I could access is HTTP & YouTube clips.
Just want web, email, and occasional video? Get the $30 package.
That's the problem with many of the proponents of usage-based-billing: its only seen as a way to increase profit, not actually pay for services used. I'll be happy to pay rates based on my "fair share" of broadband utilization. However, if I reduce my internet usage and my bill doesn't drop to match, then I call shenanigans.
