Meters aren't accurate? Fallacious Argument

The claim that bandwidth meters are inaccurate is not based on facts but on selected minimal # of claims.
quote:
Argument By Generalization:
drawing a broad conclusion from a small number of perhaps unrepresentative cases.

I'll add my selected minimal example. My Comcast bandwidth meter is accurate over the last year or so. Based on matching numbers from my router. But my example and others like mine don't prove the case anymore than a few posts at BBR prove they are inaccurate.

My Comcast meter was accurate. My TWC meter is accurate. My Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon meters are accurate, or close thereto.

AT&T and Suddenlink have inaccurate meters. Suddenlink no longer charges overages due to this meter inaccuracy. AT&T doesn't either for U-Verse. They'll start charging again when they think they can get away with it...when their meters are accurate.
