Whenever my netbook is open there are torrents streaming. My main computer uses the TV as a monitor, as well as a radio (now you can hear KSHE!). I don't have cable, so I watch a lot of Hulu. Usually the radio or hulu is going in one computer while I'm uploading torrents and surfing on the other computer.

I live alone, so this must only affect larger households with Hulu streaming from five devices and torrents uploading/downloading from five computers or something, becsue I've gotten no notices.

Oops, my bad (1)

I should have read the fucking article; this is about PHONE data caps. AT&T isn't just a phone company, they're my internet provider. I use BOOST for my phone.

Actually, the submission should have specified WHICH AT&T customers. This doesn't apply to me although I'm an AT&T customer.

The title field is very limited to what you can put in it. Wireless would have put it over the character limit I believe.
