Probably just getting rid of the outliers... 80/20 rule probably in effect in 1 shape or form.. 20 percent of people use 80 percent of the bandwidth lol

If you illegally downloading video games and blu ray movies + streaming you can reach 150gb easily...

who the f**k even reaches 150 gigs in a month? dudes need to stop d/ling mad pr0n and go see what outside looks like.
I would wager over half of BX does and it ain't got s**t to do with pr0n or going outside.

I wouldn't be surprised if it happened sooner or later.

if u did u would lose all ur money

less than 2 percent of ATT dsl users go over 150 gb a month...the average is 18 gb a month

i download a s**t load of music/movies ...i stream..and i have 2 roommates that do as well..

we're at 50 gb a month

if you download blu ray quality movies and ps3/xbox360 games its a different story

It has nothing to do with going outside or pr0n. For all intents an purposes, any type of media you could possibly want is available on the internet now. I haven't bought music in a decade and as of late I haven't been to the movies and I cancelled my DVR. Once I got hip to torrents and streaming movies and TV shows via my Xbox 360, it was a wrap.

I'm alright with Time Warner Cable. I run an Xbox, a laptop, and a desktop at the same time and it doesn't give me trouble. I seriously suggest boycotting these b**ches. If we let this happen, soon, every internet provider will put caps when it should be limitless. Jump ship, boys, and tell them f**k YOUR BUSINESS.

ATT is a.ss now. They used to be pretty fast,now they are slow a.ss s**t. Sometimes as slow as 56k.
you gotta step your plan up, dawg. i'm rocking the third best internet package they offer as of the past month and it's not only faster but also MORE reliable and consistent than Time Warner's BEST internet package. so I'm not complaining but it might depend on where you are so who knows?

yeah it's 250 GB/month for U-verse subscribers right? that's a s**t ton. My two roommates and I download/stream a lot of s**t and I don't even think that we get anywhere close to 100 GB/month let alone 250 GB!

There isn't any other ship to jump to.

ALL respectable ISP's are doing this. If you go with a small company that imposes no usage limits, you're just handicapping your own speed.

I don't see the problem. Its 150gb and 250gb. If your using over that then you have a problem. I download all the time, huge files in the gb's and i don't come any where near 150gb(their is an exception to this, that is if your downloading full games constantly).

damn...150gb?

That's like 180 movies a month.
I don't even want to know how many albums/mp3s that is.

They can get away with this because not enough people will be affected. If you do use that much, you better be making some money from the internet, in which case, you can get a business line.
