Usage Based Internet Charges
Internet Service Providers comparable to Time Warner Road Runner Internet access service are changing the way on how they charge their customers’ bandwidth consumption. We are in the era where users use the internet more than before. Video and music downloads are everywhere. And, ISPs are having a hard time to cope up with the demand for more speed. Now, ISPs are trying to make both ends meet. The idea started with Time Warner’s metered internet consumption. And, it seems like others will follow depending on the result. AT&T’s approach seems different. They suggest a usage based internet charge setting a low peak cap at night and a high off-peak cap during the rest of the day.
