AT&T Ditches Metered Billing Trials Without Telling
Internet is a super highway again.
Those of you on AT&T for wireless probably aren't pleased with the decision to introduce more heavily capped plans for data, but those of you who get your broadband internet from AT&T may be pleased to know that it has put an end to the metered billing trials.
According to Broadband Reports, AT&T has shut down its DSL metered billing since April 1 that it started in Reno, Nevada and Beaumont, Texas.
While AT&T did not officially announce an end to the program, sources told Broadband Reports that the costs of systems and support to run metered billing were rather high, though the negative PR associated with metered billing might have had something to do with it too.
