Karl, did you check under your shoes?

I smell shit in this story. Verizon: No PLANS to Meter Usage. Of course they don't have any PLANS to do it. However, Comcast is doing it, AT&T is doing it. Verizon is not going to stand by and not get more $$$.

Verizon is lulling people to sleep and then they will begin their cap nightmare. "Get your services through Verizon. We don't cap because it is not in our PLANS."

A year later: Due to the overwhelming demand for our products, we have to implement caps. Right, it's not in the PLAN.

Correct. Each major ISP needs to wait a year or two before taking their turn at having their way with us. Otherwise they'd be guilty of gang rape collusion.

Well, it's too bad consumers are going to have to pay the price of their little "experiment", but it does look like it's going to happen very, very soon.

One needs to look no further than the corporate shills in various websites (including this one) warning that "UBB IS comming" before anyone even jumped on the UBB bandwagon.

I don't think they like how their way of doing business is facing extinction.

However, prices for FTTH are ever dropping, and as expensive as it is to deploy it, the US is not the most wealthy country in the world for nothing.
Eventually, someone would take advantage of the situation and start rolling out a competitive internet service that isn't crippled.
But until that day, consumers get exploited like they haven't been since the good old POTS days.

Technology advances have been almost the only reason all those money grabs stopped being possible in the first place, and progress isn't stopping there, it's taking no prisoners.

TH ATS RIGHT. right now they re very busy RAMMING fiber into American homes along with their TV service and nice plush box rental fees and other fees. They dont want to derail this effort. Lets get fiber into most homes and get those homes off the copper line. Since competing carriers are not allowed on fiber once we get a home OFF the copper we will not reconnect it to copper and squash that competition . Then we can lower the boom here's our caps spread them and enjoy. And this WILL spread to all carriers the share holders will LOVE it !!!! and the sad part is most people will do NOTHING but just take it.
