Re: Lack of competition Metered billing as an option may work very well for some people. This isn't the plan for them, however.
A metered billing plan that may work for some people has a very low connection charge (read $5 or so) and then an affordable cost per gb of use.
A $5 discount is a slap in the face to consumers. Time Warner wants metered billing, but they don't want to reduce the connection price any. "Just pay us more" instead of "Just pay for what you use."
I never knew how much time I could waste on the Internet before it was so fast!
