Re: No April Foolin, Time Warner Cable to meter Internet, charge per GB
Problem is ... what loading is their system /currently/ experiencing? Sounds - again - like TW is putting
arbitrary caps on folks that are either WAY below or WAY above. If I get a notice from TW I want to see what they
have for my usage - before I continue. I do understand that GMAIL has a "vacation" mode that some folks are
using to reroute their emails. Looks like an option for me...

The lowest plan is only 5 gigs a month, for $29.95?!?! Lies I say. Right now
I have the lowest possible stand alone internet price from time warner at
$47 a month. Well at least that is the lowest plan they let me choose. On
their website they now list 4 different speed tiers, but when I try to order
only internet service online, I can only choose a plan for $49.95 a month.
Does anyone on here happen to work for Time Warner, or have a friend who
does? If so, how do they plan to mix speed tiers, and download caps?
How can they think 40 gigs a month is enough for their top users? Previously
I had comcast service with an "excessive usage" clause that was eventually
defined as the 250GB the article mentions. With a 40 gig cap I could not
even move my music from my local machine to my remote backup server. At the
5 gig cap I could not have legally bought HD episodes of Battlestar this
last season without going over a 5 gig cap every month.
Besides ATT, does anyone know if there any other high speed internet
providers in Austin?
