BREAKING NEWS: Time Warner Backs Away From Usage Based Billing

See. Protesting works! As proof, here’s the news that Time Warner is going to back away from going to usage based billing:

Time Warner Cable Chief Executive Officer Glenn Britt said, “It is clear from the public response over the last two weeks that there is a great deal of misunderstanding about our plans to roll out additional tests on consumption based billing. As a result, we will not proceed with implementation of additional tests until further consultation with our customers and other interested parties, ensuring that community needs are being met. While we continue to believe that consumption based billing may be the best pricing plan for consumers, we want to do everything we can to inform our customers of our plans and have the benefit of their views as part of our testing process.”

Gag me with a spoon. There is not a misunderstaing of your plan. Your plan sucks because it shows how greedy you are. That’s why consumers are pissed at you. But before Time Warner customers start jumping for joy, read the entire post and you’ll see that they’ve backed off for now. Usage based billing will return, so Time Warner customers should remain vigilant. Or they can just switch to Frontier and avoid the circus all together.
