Data Cap on DSL different from Uverse?

I thought the data cap was 250GB/mo, the ad for $14.95 DSL states 150GB/mo. Maybe it's always been this, wow less for less, 150GB on my charter connex would be exceeded in couple days.

Data caps for DSL have always been 150. Uverse was always 250, but is not enforced nor really metered at this point in time.

Prior to 2011, AT&T played with per tier caps. Something like 40 GB for Basic, 60 GB for Express, 80 GB for Pro, 100 GB for Elite, and 150 GB for U-verse. Only implemented in a couple of test markets, then withdrawn; probably due to user resistance.

Around February, 2011, they announced the return of caps; this time a simpler 150 GB for legacy ADSL, and 250 GB for U-verse. I suspect the difference is intended as an incentive in favor of moving customers from ADSL to U-verse HSI where available.

For me it was more of a dis-incentive; I kicked AT&T to the curb in favor of Sonic.net "Fusion" service.
