Time Warner Bandwith Cop

“Lemme see ya license……Any reason why ya bandwith measures 20GB in a 5GB zone???”

Just when content delivery services (amazon unbox, youtube, netflix, iTunes, etc.) have reached the point where they’re offering somethin’ worth downloading, Ars Technica (Conde Nast’s latest acquisition) reports Time Warner is in the stages of rolling out metered and capped internet service plans. What does this means for the majority of us you non-Bit Torrent abusers? Maybe the end the days of freely loungin’ on the interwebz are over, well if Time Warner has their way it is. eFlux Media gives a hint at what some of the new, tiered internet service plans from Time Warner will resemble.

Interested in how much bandwith you use? Tech Republic has a number of handy tools to help you understand how much of this precious, finite resource you waste!!!!
