Time Warner Cable Bandwidth Caps

It’s been a week of turmoil for Time Warner Cable internet customers. While the company had said in 2008 that it was playing around with the idea of a tiered and capped system, it’s finally becoming a reality with test programs set to launch this summer. Understandably, customers were hugely upset at a top-tier service capped at just 40 GB. Time Warner Cable COO Landel Hobbs responded to the backlash by revealing a 100 GB service. Going a step further, the company has revised nearly all of its plans in response to its “passionate feedback” from customers.

    I used to work for Compuserve customer service back when service was charged per min. I can't tell you how many phone calls I had to deal with 1000 dollar bills cause a modem hang up connected all month.

    So what garentee is Time Warner going to give that they are only metering actual usage and not some virus, malware or hell even the data all the ads take up?

    A cap of 40GB per month is a joke. At that rate the United States Postal Service provides more bandwidth than Time Warner with all the Netflix discs they deliver.
