Time to look at why they like tiered approaches. Does wreck internet video deliveries economics. Sounds like maybe carriers should be banned from media delivery. djf

It’s Showtime for Tiered Broadband

The two-month grace period is ending for Time Warner Cable customers in Beaumont, Texas, who are part of the ISPs tiered broadband trials. A spokesman for Time Warner Cable declined to comment but confirmed that residents would soon see bills reflecting the $1 per gigabyte overage charge for those who have consumed more than the 5 GB allowed under the $29.95 plan all the way up to the 40 GB allowed under the $54.90 plan. Now they’ll have to pay them.
