It sucks that prices are going up, but what's the alternative?
This is exactly where I am at on this issue.
I don't like paying a little more. But I realize if people clog up the tubes watching nearly free movies which will result in more capital expeditures by the phone and cable companies on hardware ...why should I be subsidizing that? If you want all that extra capacity, pay for it yourself.
Pay-as-you-go, sounds democratic to me.
From reading stuff on message boards and newspaper comment pages, the people who are most upset are the bandwidth hogs. They know very well that they have been getting a mostly free ride all along. With the rest of us subsidizing their usage. Game over, pay up or shut up.
