[TWC] Upstate NY Usage Tracker

Hi all. I'm from Rochester, New York and today I logged into MyServices on TWC's website and - lo and behold - I see a brand-spanking-new internet usage tracker! This can't be good..

They going to start imposing cap limits? If so then i am screwed.

Anyone else notice this new usage meter?

I think there are other threads about this from other areas.
I believe it is to support "Internet Essentials"

I am sure conspiracy theories will run rampant around the forum.

No conspiracy theories here Hob. We all know that it is just a matter of time until caps are implemented. There is little that we can do to stop them. I logged into my account and i see the usage data there also. 21GB so far in November. I do not think that this is a lot.

I am willing to pay 100-150 for 50/5 service as long as there are no caps and I think for ultimate internet package name if they put some caps it would be a mockery, hope it dont happen.

Same here in the Hudson Valley (Kingston area).
26 GB over part of a month. I wonder what their c(r)ap will be.
They are trying to take more money from their customers, and they have many of us over a barrel, as in some areas there is no other Internet service.

Usage so far in November
I don't think TWC wants to be the industry leader with capping, and if they did, I think they'd probably follow comcasts lead and make the cap much higher than what the average user is using (in the hundreds of gig range). Saturating the download on a turbo account for a month would be about 6.5 Terabytes. Anyway, here is an updated screengrab of my usage so far this month.

I have EL through TW and I don't see a usage bar so as EL does not have to pay a modem rental fee if TW does issue a cap and it will suck if they do I bet you EL won't be affected.

Oh, so you're not actually denying it, are you?
