Charters new tiers To me this appears that Charter is taking/modifying a page from the Cell Phone Carries and instead of charging more for "data usage" Charter is calling this a "speed upgrade" to compensate for the larger use in data in most households.
Sure the lower speed tiers work for a lot of people and meets their budget, but no matter what tier you are at if you are using a lot of data your speed tier doesn't matter.
I know in my household, we have anywhere from up to 6 internet devices connected at one time from checking email, web browsing, facebook, online games, streaming music etc.. I haven't checked what my data usage is, but I bet it's up there.
Do I need 30 or a 100 Mbps probably not yet, but given my choices I'll stick with Charter.
