I must be getting old as my usage is 126 GB in 5 months... and yes I use Hulu and other high bandwidth stuff.

Wow, since August. IIRC, Texans started had a test area first with this?

Don't remember when it was implemented here but I remember Corpus Christi and the RGV division (deep south Texas) were the first to get it.

One day while paying my bill I noticed the meter, and at that time I don't know why but the data went even earlier than August.

Can't help but wonder if this should be MB instead of GB

Earthlink does not have a bandwidth meter when I log onto my TWC account.

I have 50/5 ultimate pacakge and I am above 200GB, if someone thinks thats high then I have to ask.... If 200GB is high for you then I assume you will never need anything above 10/1 package

You surely know what they say about, "assume"! I was able to hit 95GB on a 3.0Mb ADSL connection in a light-use month. I am sure I exceeded AT&T's 150GB monthly cap in my heavy-use period, before they implemented caps.

I am amused by assumptions about usage which imply some kind of relationship exists between the speed at which data is moved and the amount of data moved. Beyond the basic mathematical one.

Who ever said 200-300gb was shocking TWC?

If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.

It may be shocking because the majority of users have no clue how much or how little bandwidth they actually use.

I am shocked at how people have 200+ GB. I consider myself a bandwidth hogger even by myself. I won't feel bad now after seeing that.

Which has gotten as much interest as inviting yellow jackets to your next picnic.

A $5 discount to keep usage at or below 5GB a month for a service that runs an average of $40 after discount means customers are effectively paying TWC at least $6 per gigabyte (unless you buy the lite slow speed tier).

My sources in Texas tell me call centers have had nearly zero luck interesting customers in this. The extremely budget conscious instead jump to a promo from AT&T offering DSL for even less with a 150GB cap.

Maybe they should do bigger discounts like $5 per month. :P
