AT&T considering bandwidth caps for DSL customers


AT&T is the latest company to consider plans to charge heavy downloaders more than casual downloaders, crippling not only pirates but stifling legitimate innovation in the process. That’s what a spokesperson told the AP, though no specific plans have been announced as yet.

Even worse, this is DSL we’re talking about. We’re used to cable providers huffing and puffing about bandwidth hogs destroying the neighborhood’s capacity, but DSL? That’s a first (I think).

Time to get a Sweden-based seedbox.
