Sorry, It’s Time to Start Counting Gigabytes at Home, Too

This is not the free market at work; do not believe the lies of the telecommunications industry. These “usage fees” are a way to extract more money from their territorial monopolies by either taxing “heavy usage” (a dubious term at best) or by pressuring a return to “traditional” cable subscriptions–and do not get reinvested into infrastructure improvements.
