Time Warner To Offer Unlimited Bandwidth For $150 479

Posted by ScuttleMonkey
from the super-size-me dept.
unr3a1 writes to tell us that Time Warner Cable has responded to the massive criticism of its new plan to cap user bandwidth with a new pricing model. Users will be given a grace period in which to assess their pricing tier. The "overages" will be noted on their bill, allowing them to change either their billing plan or their usage patterns. "On top of a 5, 10, 20, and 40-gigabyte (GB) caps, the company said this week that it would offer an additional 100GB tier for heavy users. Prices (so far) would range from $29.95 to $75.00 a month, with users charged an extra dollar for every GB more they download, although that charge is also capped at $75. An 'unlimited' bandwidth plan, therefore, tops out at $150."

Is a concession speech / phone call legally binding???? I'm not sure if this has ever been tested before...

If so, why would anyone concede the election before the electoral college meets. In this case, all you need is one elctroate to change her/his mind and the result would be different. My guess is the concession/recession is just a bunch of BS words with no legal meaning...

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.
