Well.... I would get terminated the first month...

I downloaded more than that just using my Directv-DVR for 1080p movies... Why can't these companies upgrade their out-dated equipment to provide MORE services instead of capping using old equipment... what a joke...

I too download a lot of on-demand stuff with my DirecTV DVR. I am hoping TWC doesn't implement low caps here. My only other choice for HSI is SLOOOOW(in comparison) DSL 4-5Mb for the same price as TWC's 10Mb

You wouldn't necessarily get terminated. If you were in the 132-200 GB range Suddenlink would probably give you a call and ask what's going on.

Kudos to SL for not doing anything with the meter (charging for overages), showing real stats (hours of YouTube, GB amounts that aren't simply "our average is 3GB") and generally being transparent about things. Wonder when they'll push this to other areas?

Seriously, it actually seems like a reasonable solution: let everyone know what their usage is, then ask high-usage customers what the heck is going on.
