Also lot of the time your unable to "restart the server" because it it's always in use and if you where to restart it even with notice you would get like 50 phones calls saying the server has gone down. so it's easier and less time consuming to just let the severs keep there 600+ day uptime.

+ - Will Monday Be The Day The U.S. Internet Died?

theodp writes: Shed a tear, writes Wired's Ryan Singel. The Age of Broadband Caps begins Monday, with AT&T imposing a 150 GB cap on DSL subscribers and 250 GB for UVerse users, and keeping the meter running after that. The move comes as AT&T's 16+ million customers are increasingly turning to online video such as Hulu and Netflix on-demand streaming service instead of paying for cable. With AT&T's Man in the White House, some fear there's a 'digital dirt road' in America's future. Already, the enforcement of data caps in Canada has prompted Netflix to default to lower-quality streaming video to shield its users from overage fees. In January's State of the Union address, President Obama told the nation: 'We need the fastest and most reliable ways to move people, goods, and information — from high-speed rail to high-speed Internet.' Curiously, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson publicly agreed Obama's speech was spot-on, but AT&T's recent actions have been less ask-what-you-can-do-for-your-country and more ask-what-your-country-can-do-for-you.'
