AT&T To Tighten Broadband Data Vice

Posted by on March 14, 2011 at 3:33 pm

Shucks, I guess it was only a matter of time before AT&T implemented it’s wireless data cap idea towards their DSL and U-Verse broadband service. Starting May 2nd, customers using AT&T’s DSL will only have 150 GB to work with while U-Verse customers get an additional 100 GB clocking in at a pathetic 250 GB per month. A fee of $10 will be added if the cap is surpassed more than three times in three separate months. AT&T says that only 2 percent of DSL users will be affected considering that the typical internet jocky uses around 18 GB a month. Right…

It seems like more ISP’s are becoming strict these days when it comes to data consumption. Granted there are more people using smart phones and high speed internet which creates more demand on servers. But I can’t help but think data limiting is being heavily supported by the tv and film industry thus been puting pressure on the ISP’s. /conspiracy.

If you’re like me, someone who watches tv shows on Hulu or films on Netflix quite often, be careful or you’ll pay for it. Literally.
