AT&T Begins Capping Broadband Users Today
And I'm over here with google fiber like
And I'm over here with Comcast like?
Damn and Charter are getting rid of their cap.
Considering I have no cap specifically for having a UVerse cable package with them, this seems directly targeted to those going without cable.
I know Time Warner gets a bad rep (Deservedly), but I was tricked into switching to ATT by my apartment complex after they told me TW services were being cut off from the complex. I then learned from TW as I was turning in my equipment that it was untrue and illegal for them to suggest it as cable lines are public domain. So it seems like ATT worked a deal with my apartment complex for some kind of kickback for all tenants who switched to ATT.
I wouldn't be as upset about it if ATT offered similar speeds and prices for their internet, but now I'm paying the same monthly fee for slower internet, on top of potentially having a data cap if I wanted to cancel my cable. Needless to say I'm moving out of this complex after my lease is up for being apart of something so shady.
Haha. Good thing my parents are switching from AT&T to Time Warner I guess. Also, insane that with UVerse, they only offered up to 18 mbps. Time Warner is offering 50 mbps for like $25 less right now and they don't force you to use their equipment.
Time Warner Cable is the devil. I hate them so much. Worst company to deal with. Just raise my bill just cause. Charge me a monthly fee for my modem, remote, cable box on top of the actual service fees.
Is Google Fiber as good as it sounds? Raleigh is supposed to get it. I hope it comes to my area but I'm probably to much in the suburbs to get it.
We only got TWC for internet and we're using equipment I had so thankfully we don't have extra fees. My parents went with Dish for TV since we had them before. AT&T had jacked up the prices so much that it was ridiculous. It was like $60 for 18mpbs internet and the modern would restart itself randomly and screw things up.
It's amazing. I've only had it a couple months, but there hasn't been an outage, I haven't had to reset the modem for any problems, and speeds have been consistent since day 1. On wifi 5ghz channel I get around 4-500mbs up/down. Hardwired is 980 up/down. I play a lot of fps games online and my ping is always <20ms. I've downloaded soooo many movies, entire tv series, discographies in minutes, if not seconds, via torrents.
