Re: AT&T To Impose Caps, Overages

Cap T-Plus day 3 and still no working meter! I have to say again, that no official response from AT&T managers is quite appaling. Yes I understand that this is a P2P forum but there are some mighty upset folk, here. I do not know if I should be concerned about caps, given my usage pattern but I would expect that they would have 6 months or so worth of data per subscriber available to allieviate fears but NOTHING.
If you look several posts above this one there is a link posted to another Forum. In that Forum one person in Indianopolis, IN, says his ATT bandwidth meter is working fine and another person located in Nashville, TN, says his is working intermitently.
Thus, IN MY OPINION, by the end of next week we will probably all have working ATT bandwith meters available.
Also, I heard Reed Hastings of Netflix speak in a different forum and he said in a few years he will be streaming movies with 8 times the quality of today's HD movies and as I GUESS from his comments bandwidth compression will be a big item then. Thus, we may be using 1% of today's bandwidth in the near future with TEN TIMES the output. These new ATT limits will soon be a distant memory of the past.
I am sure new Residential Gateways are in our future sporting higher speeds and higher decompression capabilities.
As I stated earler in this thread the technology developments are going to come from ATT and others fast and furious and we should all just enjoy them and not worry about small fee changes up AND DOWN.
Well I'm in indianapolis. Ast of 6:24 AM 5/6/2011 it's still not working.
