Charging fixed service subscribers by usage is back again. AT&T announced that it will charge DSL customers consuming more than 150 GB per month (2% of its residential customer base) starting on May 2.
See "AT&T caps monthly traffic for DSL subscribers" - here.
"For U-Verse, a faster version of DSL available in some areas, the monthly cap will be 250 gigabytes. Beyond the limits, AT&T will charge $10 per 50 gigabytes. It said it will warn subscribers repeatedly as they approach their monthly limits".
This is not the first time AT&T tries to meter DSL. See "AT&T - Yes for Metered Wireless, No for Metered DSL" - here.
