THIS. Its mostly about Netflix. Charge enough that it costs less to order Pay Per View than to use Netflix, then TWC pushes them out.
And this is pretty much what my ISP tells you if you call to complain about their 150Gb per month cap. "Use our on-demand services and it won't count against the cap." Same with their VOIP service (which I thought wasn't allowed). Bear in mind that their overage charge is $1.50 per 1Gb.
The annual premium for my $45K (new) Infiniti is just over $80 more than my for my wife's $24K Toyota. Go figure.
Yes. Those of us who are unfortunate to live in local cable company monopolies. Our data cap is 150Gb per month with a $1.50 per 1Gb overage charge. Where possible, I buy games on disc. Between Netflix, Hulu, steam, X-box content, etc. it's way too easy to blow through 150Gb.
