Frontier updated its acceptable use policy on July 23, 2008 without any fanfare whatsoever. It now states that 5Gb a month is "reasonable" usage of a residential DSL account. http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Frontier-Imposes-5-GB-Cap-For-DSL-96546 Wow, so much for renting a few movies or buying TV season passes. One TV show runs half a Gb and movies around 1.5Gb or better. I don't know when Frontier was going to tell me about this, short of just mailing me some kind of warning letter sometime, like maybe it's in the mail right now? There is no mention of an excess usage rate or package, so I guess the point of the policy change is to prune out real bandwidth consumers and get back to making a buck off grandmas emailing their kids once a week and not noticing if it's way slow. Has it occurred to them that Time Warner Cable serves quite a few of the same suburban and semi-rural areas? Maybe they don't care and their focus is just on reducing costs. The fewer customers one has, the less upkeep there is on the equipment. Well, I can revive my dial up account that I used to maintain as a backup with one of Frontier's 56k competitors. I can walk to the mailbox for Netflix movies, and surf text-based news on a dialup. To heck with Frontier, and I am certainly not going to sign up for some cable package now, because all those guys are looking at caps as well. Brick and mortar libraries and book publishers might get a little bump in biz from this! I will sure God miss the iTunes Store though.
