Time Warner Shutting Off Austin Accounts For Heavy Usage
For those of you who wish to keep track of how much bandwidth you're using, FreeMeter's an open source meter for XP that lets you both monitor your speed, chart that shit out and you can set it to alert you when you hit whatever limit you set it to. A must if you're in Texas, are a TW customer anywhere else or like to tether. Sourceforge, yo, it's legit.
Time Warner To Offer Unlimited Bandwidth For $150
I've been a little tuned out, last time I checked in only hearing about Time Warner testing this capping out in other markets (I'm in NYC), thinking it would never happen to me. So I take it this means a cap is already imposed for me, presumably with prohibitive surcharges after I break it?
The one thing I like about Time Warner is that they tend to look the other way (you know what I'm talking about) unlike OptimumOnline for example with their silly letters. I also like having a somewhat static IP without ports blocked and a general laisez faire attitude about running any kind of daemon, at least off-paper.
Question to Verizon FiOS users in NYC: Is it really badass in general? Same kind of throughput regardless of the nature of your packets? Duplex? Any scary letters show up in the mail? Any downside for me, other than the schlep, to switch from TW to Verizon FiOS for both Internet and television? Because I'm this close to making the two phone calls. Sad because I live close to the Time Warner building and I like the building. It's a nice building. But I spend more time on the Internet than I do walking by their building so I'm not going to let that sway me entirely. But Verizon is such an ugly name. I mean.. Verizon. ugh :(. They paid someone to come up with that?
I could have just googled this, Time Warner NYC's TOS and pricing, but I want my post to serve as an example of what happens to a Time Warner customer once he reads this New York Times article. God bless free market competition.
