    Ok I got a letter about a month ago from my ISP Carrier which is Roadrunner and when I signed this contract 6 months ago it was for unlimited service. Now they have informed me that they are changing their service from unlimited to anything over 15 GigaBytes per month of downloading they will charge me or any customer $15 for every GigaByte we go over that 15. WTF! Geez I download movies all the time which most movies are at least 700mb per movie.
    Now they want me to upgrade to T1 Business Class which IS Unlimited. 2.5 download and 512 upload speed for $80 bucks a month compared to the $44.95 I am paying now.

    Maan I cannot afford this shit! Same as everything else.. Give you something great to real u in then change it to make you pay more. Kinda like McDonalds Super size meals..they used to be super sized now they make em smaller and still call it Super size but charge u more.

    Soo.. what ya think? should I upgrade or not or try a different carrier?

    Here is my monthly usage since Jan. with them:

    January - 21.6 GB

    February - 18.7 GB

    March - 28.0 GB

    April - 46.7

    May - 103.5 GB <--WOW

    June - 79.0 GB

    July - Not In Yet

    I use ComCast, and if there is a limit I haven&#39;t reached it yet


    Are you paying for it alone? If not I might go for the T1, otherwise you might just have to learn to live with it.


    But then, all you need is just 2 gigs over and you&#39;d be paying as much as the T1...

    wooooaaah&#33; as soon as I get done typing this it is off to my cable company to switch Internet providers. Guys and gals if any of you have roadrunner cable through your Time warner..switch over to http://max.inter.net/ which is also carried throgh Time Warner. They Have a great plan PLUS they are located in Canada so no worries about trouble with RIAA or MIAA and the most important thing...THIS COMPANY HAS NO CAP ON UPLOAD OR DOWNLOAD..talk ta ya&#39;s in awhile I&#39;m out the door to swith from fucked up road runner
