… that Time Warner announced today they are not going to move ahead – for the time being – with their plan to start charging customers by the amount of data they consume.
“It is clear from the public response over the last two weeks that there is a great deal of misunderstanding about our plans to roll out additional tests on consumption based billing,” Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt said Thursday in a statement. “As a result, we will not proceed with implementation of additional tests until further consultation with our customers and other interested parties.”
A great deal of misunderstanding?
Hey, Time Warner! Don’t you own a company called AOL? Didn’t it used to charge customers by the amount of time they spent online? And what happened when all those customers realized they could get unlimited access for a set price from your competitors?
Hello? Is anybody in there? Gadzooks!
So sayeth the Stickmonkey.
