?

Which duopoly company started this first? AT&T, Comcast or Time Warner?

IIRC it was Time Warner floating the idea, then followed by Comcast's "SOFT CAP POLICY" followed by AT&T's HARD CAP policy.. and since that went unchallened, Comcast thinks they can shove down the consumer's throats, or backsides a hard cap policy..

I guess it sucks to live where these companies have free reign to screw over the consumer with usage based billing AND have a franchise lock on the communities they serve. No wonder the population is moving to the eastern half of the country instead of moving west.. wher infrastructure is more developed.

You are way off on that tid bid of information, just comparing Arizona to NY. Arizona is growing 3x as fast as NY not to mention other NE states. 1.42% vs .45%

By the way these companies are pack hunters, it is not a question if VZ will have caps, it is when?

What abject nonsense.

No one is moving east, or west, based on broadband availability.
Nor is the east "more developed".
Nor is any location "franchise locked".

Where do you get this stuff?
