I just confirmed that not all employees at AT&T knew about this! This has been in effect since April 20,2011.

This info comes from an e-mail that I requested. Now this may be seem like a lot but I found out I am already up to 25 GB in a weeks time. This will
mainly effect Netflix and YouTube users or heavy downloader/uploaders. Now if you watch anymore than 50 movies a month you have already used up most
of your usage. Another problem is you have more than one e-mail account. I would suggest opting out of everything you can. I am not sure what to do
about spam e-mail but I get at least 100 spam e-mails per week. Is you go to myusage.att.com you can check out you usage there. Just type in your att
email and password.
I am providing this informaton because I believe this is a customer's right to know. They claimed they have sent you something but they are lying.
They want you to upgrade your services to U-verse which is more expensive. This is a very sneaky way of making people pay more or at least scaring
people to pay for services they can't afford. The last customer service rep I talked to asked me a whole lot of questions about this because she did
not know much. She did not know the cap was already in effect. This is going backwords because we accept this now they may try to even sneakier
things. Who's to say the might not start charging per web site or have different packages. A company has blatently lied to use and now what do we do?
Any ideas because they will all be doing this soon.
