Re: Thank you. Just looked at my last three months WAN usage - I average 110G a month down......
This is not going to be pretty (5GB cap)
Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
Re: Thank you.
said by skuv :Its a choice now, but given their moves in the past, this is just baby steps to impose canada like lowcap/high overage models in the USA. Its a choice now, but i would bet you everything I own that in 1 year, its mandatory.
So you CHOSE the Internet Essentials package then?
Re: just one user comment has been posted to the site - not That's for the fighting rising costs conversation... The Internet Essentials tab only has one comment... And I got the same response as ptrowski
Edit: I bet if we add a comment saying something like "Caps are great. It keeps my internet faster." Or something stupid like that it will get published. Someone want to try?

said by FFH5:And i'm sure it's meant to be that way. TWC is a company that never accepts fault on anything, so it's no surprise that they are censoring internet comments down to what amounts to someone elses fault.
My bad. FWIW, none of the comments seem to address the topics they are in. All of the comments seem to be about not liking the content companies.

·Time Warner Cable
No complaints On this side of town, most everyone I associate with uses Time Warner Cable, not Verizon or AT&T; CableCo continues to deliver better service, value, and pricing, and they've been doing so for four years.
Karl's incessant tirade, in which he insists CableCo wants to charge overages, is simply foolish. Overage charges will cause Mom to bolt, in a hearbeat.
Volume-based pricing exists to allow them to reach marginal customers who otherwise might go without, but otherwise don't use much. My folks, my former landlord, my immediate neighbors, would ALL benefit from TWC's proposed plan.
If you were to suggest that "low" caps are intended to induce
data hogs "average users" to alleviate their meter-anxiety and pay more for "unlimited" plans, that would make more sense.
Re: No complaints It's not a tirade, it's a reality... They want caps. They want overage fees. Because it's a massive source of pure profit. (plus it puts a damper on "internet video" draining away profits from their TV business.)
The business is profitable (and has been for many years.) They're managing DOCSIS 3 upgrades while still being profitable. But they claim the need caps/overages to keep the lights on. In no other business can you force your customers to take what they don't want.
The "just take your business elsewhere" idea is nice, but often isn't an option. If TWC is out, where am I supposed to go? Uverse... not available here. DSL... legacy bellsouth dsl (max 6M) would be available, but AT&T won't provision new connections, and it has a 150GB cap. (their standard lie is "no ports available") FiOS? not available -- Verizon sold Durham to Frontier who doesn't have a single clue how to use it. HughsNet/DirectWay/etc. You're jokeing right?!? LTE/4G/3G/etc. cellular... expensive, low caps, high overages or brutal throttling. Clearwire... in my experience, that shit doesn't work very well anywhere. (while I've tried it here, and it does "work", it's not so fast or reliable.) And they also have caps and throttling, 'tho undocumented and applied seemingly at random.
