Unlimited broadband has just taken another step towards extinction on landline connections in the US. With AT&T announcing that they will soon be introducing caps on their DSL and U-Verse high speed Internet connections.
The new updated to the packages will start on May 2nd and include a 150GB monthly cap on AT&T’s DSL connections and 250GB on AT&T U-Verse high speed Internet connection packages.
With the packages AT&T has also added a few extras including a few fail safe features just in case customers find themselves slip over the limits. AT&T will allow a customer to exceed their limits twice within the life of their account, without any effect.
However, on the third time your monthly data allotment is exceeded, overage fees will be put in place. Overage fees will be $10 for every 50GB that you go over the limit. However, AT&T will automatically send notifications to customers as they reach certain amounts: 65, 90, and 100 percent data cap thresholds. Leaving no place for excuses when customers incur extra charges for overages.Filed Under: Technology News
