Default Time Warner Cable Tries Metering Internet Use

I have no idea why internet service providers think it is a good idea to impose caps on bandwidth, it just drives customers away. I know the statistics say that 5% of users consume half the total capacity on cable networks but is the “fix” to penalize 100% of your customers for the actions of a few? Just doesn't make sense.

On Thursday, new Time Warner Cable Internet subscribers in Beaumont, Texas, will have monthly allowances for the amount of data they upload and download. Those who go over will be charged $1 per gigabyte, a Time Warner Cable executive told the Associated Press.
