Time Warner Cable Broadband Tiers Lead to Fears

..... lol only fears of their shareholders.


Is Time Warner Cable crazy? As I review the pricing plans unveiled today for the broadband and cable provider’s tiered levels of service, I can’t help but wonder that. Earlier this year, the company said it would experiment with tiered pricing in Beaumont, Texas, and now has set up a pricing plan that ranges from $29.95 a month for something I’d call “barely broadband” at 768 kilobits per second with a 5-gigabyte monthly cap to $54.90 per month for 15 megabits per second and a 40-gigabyte cap. Overage fees will be $1 per gigabyte, and customers will be able to monitor their bandwidth consumption via the company’s web site.

I’m off to another provider the moment that pricing arrives here in New York - thats insane.
Hope you are reading this Verizon etc etc, I’d be planning my next rollout to every location that Time Warner announces this new pricing scheme being implemented - lol like shooting fish in a barrel sometimes.
