I'm surpised it's taken them this long to impose caps...
Although for a personal customer wouldnt 250GB be more than enough for a month. I'm on a 200Gb plan i never exceed my limit and i do aloooooot of
downloading and streaming.
Do they have shaped usage plans? What i mean is that if you exceed your 250, the speed slows to 256kbs etc. That might sound crap but it sure beats
the excess usage charges which can be amazingly high!!
I would have looked at the AT&T site myself but to look at the plans i had to enter a zip or phone number... as im in Australia i gave up..
It's kinda ironic though, that with more services becoming available via online media and streaming that they are deciding to cap the plans. A single
full Fibre line or FTTP can have 4 services running on it at once for example;
Phone line, Internet, Fax and Pay TV and even free to air digital TV, so you would think that with fibre being rolled out more and more, they plans
would actually increase
Just a tip, check out your providers small business dsl plans, they normally have unlimited plans and on better and more reliable networks and the
prices arent to different
