w00t! Time Warner puts caps on hold

Well it looks like the out-cry from the public has worked .. for now.

Today Time Warner announced that their “metered billing” plan was to be put on hold for all planned markets. In NY we have Congressman Eric Massa (D-NY) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to thank, as both stepped in and talked with Time Warner about the outrage from customers about the new plan.

My favorite quote of the article and the one I believe sums this whole mess up best is from Eric Massa, “We’re delighted that commonsense prevailed.”
