A leaked memo reveals they're now watching how many gigabytes customers use in
a "consumption-based" pricing experiment in Texas.
"As few as 5 percent of our customers use 50 percent of the network,"
Time-Warner complains, mulling plans to cap usage at
5-gigabytes, with more expensive pricing plans
granting 10-, 20-, and 40-gigabyte quotas.
Steven Levy suggests Time-Warner's real aim is to
hobble iTunes, raising the cost of a movie download by $10
(or $30 for a high-definition movie). Eyeing Time-Warner's
experiment, Comcast cable also says they're evaluating a pay-per-gigabyte model."
