> GREAT ARTICLE. A snippet.
> "The company claims its capped rates are fairer than flat rates because
> people who use less bandwidth stand to get a break as the company shifts
> its costs to others who use the network more."
> "There is only one small problem: A close look at Time Warner Cable's
> books shows no significant link between its high-speed data costs and
> network usage."
> "For 2008, the most recent period available, Time Warner Cable reported
> that its high-speed data costs actually declined by 12 percent to $146
> million. Meanwhile subscribers increased by more than 10 percent to 8.4
> million, and high-speed data revenues climbed to more than $4 billion. "
> "UPDATE: Since this article was first published, Time Warner Cable has
> updated its pricing scheme." SEE BELOW.
> "Bowing to Pressure, Time Warner Alters Broadband Caps"
