Time Warner Cable starts customer trial with metered Internet access in Texas

On Thursday, new Time Warner Cable Internet subscribers in Beaumont, Texas, will have monthly allowances for the amount of data they upload and download. Those who go over will be charged $1 per gigabyte, a Time Warner Cable executive told the Associated Press.

Metered billing is an attempt to deal fairly with Internet usage, which is very uneven among Time Warner Cable's subscribers, said Kevin Leddy, Time Warner Cable's executive vice president of advanced technology.

Just 5 percent of the company's subscribers take up half of the capacity on local cable lines, Leddy said. Other cable Internet service providers report a similar distribution.

"We think it's the fairest way to finance the needed investment in the infrastructure," Leddy said.

Behold, the future:

I pay $60 a month right now with unlimited access. Prices will drop and cell providers will give companies like Time Warner a run for their money. The service is sketchy in some areas of the Country (Santa Fe was giving me fits last night), but most areas are high speed. It's the only thing I like about Sprint.

Forget about online gaming though with that.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

I'm in Albuquerque, NM now and the speed test came back:

Upload 37 kb/s

The speed here seems to be average. Someone tell me, is this good? It seems as good as most cable connections I have used. I would highly recommend testing one of these before signing a contract with them. Santa Fe was basically dial up speed.

I've never played. What are we talking, W.O.W.? Tell me which one to test and I'll give it a look.

What service are you using for the speed test?

I was just thinking about that...theirs! I've never ran a test before on this. Where is another site I can test on?

I was just in Wayne, NJ for 5 days and had good service. I'll be back there next week and I'll test there.
