A user of a communications network is prevented from consuming an excessive amount of channel bandwidth by restricting use of the channel in accordance with the type of data being downloaded to the user. The user is provided an initial number of credits. As the user consumes the credits, the data being downloaded is checked to determine if is permissible or non-permissible. Non-permissible data includes file-sharing files and movie downloads if user subscription does not permit such activity. If the data is permissible, the user is provided another allotment of credits equal to the initial allotment. If the data is non-permissible, the user is provided an allotment of credits less than the initial allotment.
Gnashing my teeth over here.
We need to start a telecom that offers breakneck speeds, on-par equipment, and decent service without allowing unlawful government access and throttling based on bullcrap!
Anyone up for bandwidthing together?
Boy do I hate cable companies. I absolutely love my Uverse and will never switch back, you hear me TWC? Never. I'd rather switch to Verizon 4g LTE for my internet and just stream video online.
Sevags, I doubt you mean that. Verizon's LTE plan for Internet is priced like their other cellular plans. So if you go over your allotment, you're going to pay $30-$50 a GB.
They're just trying to keep their monopoly intact. The fact that it's so easy for them to do is what pisses me off.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Interestingly, most of these companies are also going to be illegal because they get federal help, which is effectively a "partnership"
Joel, I do mean that! lol I used Verizon as an example on purpose. My Mom had to sue TWC after we switched to Uverse 2 years ago and we won. We would never go back under any circumstance even if it meant paying much higher prices somewhere else or giving up Internet and TV in the home all together.
lol what a bunch of babies, the more they do this the more people leave them on principle alone
