Well, goodbye everyone. As of May 2nd, I will no longer be able to play games with or talk to any of you; it will be way too damn expensive.
150GB per month is ok, unless you buy games online a lot then perhaps it can be a pain :P
I do. It's hella cheaper. Also, youtube, pandora, and nexflix are HUGE bandwidth gobblers, if you use them as much as I do.
They can't afford to update their infrastructure.
And caps aren't going to help them. $10 per 50gb overage charges may as well be pennies.
The whole country lacks the infrastructure to support even the relative pedestrian bandwidth demands of today, much less the exponentially greater demands of the future.

Bandwidth caps are the last desperate cry of a collapsing company.
And AT&T has been in a slow crumble for a while.
Is that the overcharge rate? I haven't found any info on it... most companies charge something like a dollar for every GB.
Says it in the article.
"AT&T will also charge overage fees of $10 for every additional 50GB of data, with two grace periods to start out -- in other words, the third month you go over the cap is when you'll get charged."
