Time Warner Cable bringing its usage-based broadband racket nationwide

Time Warner Cable Usage

How would you like to start paying overage fees for watching too many cute cat videos on your home broadband connection? If so, Time Warner Cable (TWC) has a plan for you! LightReading reports that Time Warner Cable is planning to bring its usage-based broadband plans nationwide by giving customers the option of getting $5 “discounts” if they agree to consume less than 5GB of data per month. According to LightReading, Time Warner’s metered data plan “lets customers consume five gigabytes per month before being charged $1 per GB above that threshold, but not to exceed $25 per month.” The company still will offer its unlimited usage plans to customers, of course, and it says that its usage-based plans are only targeted toward customers who have relatively light usage.
