Re: people can rest assured

If you're using an ISP other than Yahoo, is the cap still enforced?

If not, this is a serious issue because only fairly recently were Internet DSL and Internet Cable services re-classified as an "information service." and are not subject to "Common Carrier" requirements of the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

With no broadband telecommunications "carrier service" available, there are generally only two Internet broadband providers in a residential market: the cable Internet provider and the DSL.

Remember back in the day when you could call any local number on the phone for free? Basically, this is not the case anymore.

The old Adam Sandler sketch "Tollboth Willy" comes to mind.
