DSL customers who download more than 150 gigabytes of data in a given month will be charged $10 for each extra 50GB used. Users of its "U-verse" fiber product will be charged if they exceed 250GB in a given month.
What this really amounts to is another money making scheme. AT&T claims that the average usage is 18GB, and that only 2% of people actually use more than 250GB, but if that were true, that number would have no effect on their bottom line, hence another ponsie scheme.
Especially concerning those who frequent this website, I bet that we all eat up bandwidth uploading videos and watching Youtube videos. I urge everyone to discourage this by switching from U-Verse. Our family is already highly considering switching to Version FIOS/TV and dropping U-Verse. I urge everyone to consider doing the same to discourage this greedy practice by internet providers.
