AT&T Rolls Out DSL, U-Verse Bandwidth Caps

If you're an AT&T DSL and U-Verse customer, starting today you will need to be monitor just how much of the internet you're enjoying. No longer is your access to the information superhighway an all-you-can-eat affair.

Starting today, AT&T will implement a 150GB monthly usage cap for their DSL customers and a 250GB monthly usage cap for their U-verse users.  Those exceeding the caps consistently will incur overage charges: $10 fee for every additional 50GB consumed beyond the associated cap.

Of course, AT&T will not enforce these caps without a way for customers to monitor their own usage. If you're with AT&T, hit up this My Usage link to see if your account is set up for tracking. If it says that it's under construction, then you're still free to download with reckless abandon!

    Glad I cancelled my Uverse service last month when I heard they were rolling this out. When the customer service rep asked why I was cancelling I told him it was due to the bandwidth caps and overage charges that they were implementing and he didn't attempt to try talk me out of cancelling. I got the feeling I was probably one of dozens that day who were calling to cancel for the same reason.

    I didn't know it would take that long for AT&T to implement one, though being stuck on Comcast I was hoping other ISPs wouldn't follow Comcast's example? marine good luck finding another one.
