Transfer Cap?

2 questions:

1) with the 300 meg/s service, what's the upload side?

 

2) What's the monthly or other cap on data transfer if any ?

1) I haven't seen this published.

2) 1 TB/month.

 

 

Correction on 1):  I have seen this published: "GigaPoweroffers upstream speeds 20 times faster than what's available today".  Interpreting this as 20 times the 6 Mbps upstream available for 45 Mbps downstream, then the upstream speed would be 120 Mbps.

 

This is only my interpretation.

Re: Transfer Cap?

The only remaining question is WHEN. Smiley Happy 

 

I just put the order in this morning, and the system says to wait 24 hrs to see when.....

 

300/120 or even 300/50 will do nicely.....

 

(I've been doing between 250g and 400g /month on TWC, so the 1TB is fine. 

 

It would be nice(tm) if the exact speeds and caps were more easily accessable to us. Smiley Happy

I found the cap in the offer details link on the ordering site.  The other came from the press releases available almost anywhere (and knowing the 6 Mbps is the maximum VDSL2 upstream rate currently available).

 

I don't know whether AT&T will be enforcing this 1 TB/month cap or not, as they have, but do not enforce, a cap on VDSL2 users of 250 GB/month.

Re: Transfer Cap?

I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't enforce it except for folks REALLY abusing (multi-TB/mo) the service. 

 

having worked in the ISP biz in the late 90s/early 2000's I can understand NOT saying unlimited Smiley Happy

Agree with your first point.  And I undestand not saying unlimited as well, but you and I are definitely in the minority.

According to this PR it is symetrical. http://www.att.com/shop/u-verse/gigapower.html#fbid=YM624_pob5r

 

The fastest Austin Internet speeds ever!

We're proud to introduce the next generation of U-verse. We're investing heavily in Austin to install a 100% fiber network, delivered straight to the home.

  • 300Mbps download and upload speeds
  • Free upgrade to speeds up to 1Gbps in mid-2014*
  • Plus our fastest in-home Wi-Fi speeds

 

 

Of course there's always the "Up To" disclaimer to take into account. http://www.att.com/shop/u-verse/gigapower.html#fbid=YM624_pob5r

 

AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet 300: Internet speed claims represent maximum speed capabilities. Speeds may vary and are not guaranteed. Actual speeds vary based on Internet factors including site traffic, content provider server capacity, and use of other U-verse services. U-verse Internet price includes 1TB of data/mo. $10 for each additional 50GB, with a maximum monthly overage charge of $30. For more information, go to www.att.com/internet-usage.

 

This also explains the caps.

Re: Transfer Cap?

Is the 1Tb a month cap just for download transfers or is it download and upload transfers? Thanks!

That's the way the caps they do enforce work, both up and down combined.

How much data is included in my AT&T Internet service?

Residential AT&T High Speed Internet service includes 150 gigabytes (GB) of data each billing period, and residential AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet service includes 250 Gigabytes (GB) of data each billing period. U-verse with Gigapower, where available, includes 1 terabyte (TB) of data each billing period. The data you send and receive each month contributes to your monthly data plan.

Re: Transfer Cap?

I just had the 300Mbps "GigaPower" service installed yesterday and can confirm symmetrical upload/download speeds.  Mine measured out at 90Mbps both ways.
