I ran across an article in the San Francisco Chronicle that was talking
about Sonic.net's data and fiber deployment plans. The SFChron
blogger was asking why the major players couldn't do what Sonic.net
could...

Go Sonic! :D

AT&T's arbitrary and unrealistic cap was the reason I switched, and I'm delighted with Sonic's service. I work from home and regularly transfer large image files back and forth to my customers, but with more online multimedia services being offered every month and the growing trend toward cloud hosting of backups and storage, even a casual user can eat up their bandwidth allotment in short order. It's a ridiculous time for ISPs to be creating a climate of artificial bandwidth scarcity at the same time they're touting improved speeds.

There was also this article that got a lot of press yesterday and Dane even tweeted it: http://kotaku.com/5820450/the-day-comca ... for-1-year

It is crazy that they would not tell their customers what the data was or if it was download and upload. I never thought that they meant upload when they were talking about caps. Good reason to go with us - no caps! :)
