Time Warner Cable To Expand Its Bandwidth Caps To Additional Cities

"Tests of a somewhat-more-draconian-than-normal 40GB monthly download cap in poor little Beaumont, Texas must have gone well for TWC, because they're bringing bandwidth caps to more cities this year, could your town be next?

No one knows yet; all we do know is that TWC COO Landel Hobbs announced intentions to expand the caps to more cities this year.

Dan over at Alley Insider points out that Time Warner's strategy doesn't appear to only be about stopping hardcore pirates (which a more roomy 250GB cap, like Comcast's, is better at)-no, they appear to be going for a new revenue model in which they hit up harder-core users for overage fees. Although if they keep the bar set at 40GB, they might be sticking not just big Torrenters but mom and dad streaming Netflix Watch Instantly, too."

***You have to be kidding me, Time Warner Cable is
ridiculous!!! I hope they go out of business with this retarded fucking move... For all Clevelander's and others who HATE Time Warner's service, AT&T offers cable, Internet, & home phone... I have the pleasure of experiencing AT&T's cable and Internet, and its GREAT!!! They are trying to expand in the Cleveland area (not available everywhere quite yet) but if you have the chance to switch, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!***
