Internet usage... is your monthly usage of internet limited?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Thu Mar 10, 2016 9:55 am

Should providers have the right to limit your monthly usage, depending on how much you pay?
What if everyone were limited, no matter how much they spent?
Any thoughts on why internet usage would need to be limited?

Funny thing is, most people don't remember when the internet was first available, the providers charged by the hour, or sometimes even by the minute!

But today, there's only one reason to place limits on usage: so they can charge more.

Is it possible that there is way too many people using it, bogging it down or using way too much? Can it be exhausted?

Not unless your internet provider is extremely inadequate.

They are definitely money hungry. I pay $50 a month to have 8G.. I don't use anywhere near that amount of data, but it is the best deal for my money. I don't want unlimited data because I would prefer not to be online all the time to use it. The net is an intrusion into your life if you let it be.

Lorry, it sounds like they limit your internet there like they limit mobile usage here, where often, even the 'unlimited data' plans aren't always truly unlimited.

It is limited. I don't download movies or such, so I don't really use much data.

I got really tired of a provider charging more after a limited amount. It wasn't about usage...just money making. The same provider claimed  unlimited usage for cell phones, but it was a lie and people found that out when their bills arrived.

Lorry, do you only have one choice for an internet provider? $50 for limited service is kind of high.

We have other providers, but this is the best deal for me here, that suits my needs. The others are much higher and where I live the service the others provide is not always able to access. Limited service due to location.

Tater, without promotional prices, special deals, etc... what do you see as a good deal that is offered by providers?

Well I guess that's the problem, Breezey; there is always a promotion or special deal going on, which makes it next to impossible to determine exactly what their 'regular price' is.

But from what I've seen, for $50, you should be able to get high speed internet with unlimited access.

Here's a hint: even if they are a monopoly, they don't want to lose your business; if you call them up and tell them their price is too high, you should be able to negotiate a better deal, even if it's only for a limited time. If they say it's the best they can do, tell them it's not good enough and you want to cancel the service. I guarantee they will offer a better deal.

Is it possible that internet and other things are higher priced there in accordance with higher wages for jobs?

I suppose it's possible. Maybe we should ask Roxy how much she pays for internet access.
