Usage based billing is a joke and a major scam.
There is plenty of bandwith on the provider's networks but that is not as profitable as giving you very little bandwith each month and then charging you extra for additional use. I find it hilarious when I call my ISP and they say I don't need additional bandwith because I never go over my monthly usage. I try really hard not to yell at them and tell them that they are morons. If they cap you at 80 gigs and tell you that they will charge you for each additional gig, I make sure that I stay within the small limit alloted to me. I do need more bandwidth and I don't go over my monthly cap so that I don't give these greedy corporations even a penny more. They have upset millions of people in North America and world wide and continue to harm the relationship between them and their customers. In the future they should not be surprised when their own customers lash back at them by moving to smaller ISP's who are less greedy and offer a reasonable amount of data for a reasonable amount of money.
Internet usage is becoming more expensive not because it really is but because the large corporations are trying to inflate the price so that they can make huge profits and gouge their customers as much as they can. The Internet has become an integral part in our homes and people have to realize what is happening with Usage Based Billing and fight back against this new policy that the large ISPs are trying to force on us. So far, many people are not very knowledgeable about this subject and I hope that they take it upon themselves to research it and get to know the facts. The large Corporations do not care about their customers and they will continue these business practices until we stop them by demanding something fair. If we do nothing, the large corporations will definitely charge us a lot more for a lot less. We would love to hear your own opinion on Usage Based Billing so please leave your opinions in the comment section below.
