Re: 5GB/mo not enough for almost all landline users
Don't think for a second that they haven't done all the calculations regarding usage, costs and the allowance just like ATT and VZW have done.
ATT's plans are such that most users fall in between the tiers, so most users use more than 250MB of data, but not 3GB, so they either pay the 30 dollars for data they never use, or pay the 20 dollar and incur overages. Voice plans are the same way, either you pick a minutes tier where you go over constantly, OR you pick a minutes tier where you amass thousands of never going to be used rollover minutes. Wouldn't it be nice if you could simply pick a plan closer to your usage minutes and save money?
So TWC has come up with a plan where most users will break the allowance keeping ARPU even while slowly introducing the frog to the warming water.
