The Internet usage allowances letter
I got one because I have both Uverse U300 & Internet on the same bill. Effectively, as the letter states, that after 23 May 2016 I will have an "unlimited data allowance" on my account and will be able to monitor that on the att.com/myatt webpage. Many times and places it's been stated that less then 5% of ATT customers exceed their monthly allowance. I bet those folks exceed it by a lot. Anyway I speculate that certainly this is a marketing decision but I also think that because ATT Uverse TV is a data consuming service it was simply easier for ATT to swollow that 5% of over consuming customers and just turn it all loose. Trying to deciper internet data from Uverse TV data and police that is just too much to deal with. Any other thoughts are appreciated.
FWIW Internet data consumtion is increasing with leaps and bounds. I've read that raw internet datarate is increasing at between 20% -> 50% per year depending on who you believe. I measure some websites where simply visiting them you get force fed 10's of megabytes of nonsense just opening their web portal page. ( www.bbc.com )
