Re: Next time be careful of what you wish for...

The content providers won the net nuetrality fight but the consumer lost the war because the ISPs came up with a way to charge money for the increased usage.

The way AT&T and CenturyLink have implemented caps suggests that they are trying to steer users to more expensive services, not to mitigate "costs" of "increased usage".

In my case, all that AT&T accomplished was to steer me to a lower cost, higher speed competitive service; with no caps.

Neither company has Not for Profit status so their world profit is part of the calculation.

If legacy ADSL (AT&T) and 1.5 M Internet are not profitable, either raise the price to a profitable level, or pull the damned plug on the services.
