I had a quick read through some of the internet packages offered by ISPs, and now all of them seem to be 'metered'; as in your are given surplus charges if you go over the limit. I'm not a heavy user but do download more than average. I was wondering when this charging policy started to be the norm?
I joined be internet in 2006 and am on uncapped 'reasonable usage' policy. So this new stuff doesn't apply to me but I'm just curious... It could become a problem to a lot of people, if streaming HD from film sites etc becomes more popular.
