What's New: AT&T Sets Data Usage Limits

AT&T announced that starting May 2 it will limit usage for its DSL and U-Verse subscribers. DSL users will be capped at 150 GB per month, while U-Verse subscribers are capped at 250 GB. Customers who exceed this limit three times will be billed $10 for each additional 50 GB. AT&T estimates that less than 2 percent of its customers will be affected. Generally this limit would be reached only by users downloading large numbers of TV shows or thousands of songs, for example around eight hours of standard definition video per day. By comparison, Comcast limited their users to 250 GB in October of 2008.
