15 GB Data Caps?

March 14, 2011 19:57:16.000

Looks like the future involves capped data - AT&T just announced new limits:

AT&T claims their average DSL customer uses around 18GB a month, and these changes will only impact about 2% of all DSL customers -- who the company states consume "a disproportionate amount of bandwidth."

That sounds reasonable until you consider increased use of things like iTunes movie rentals, Netflix, Hulu (et. al.). If you grab a few HD movies, you can start running into those limits faster than you might think.

Of course, the providers would rather have you use their "free" on demand services....
