NTL Talks 2005 Broadband Caps

Posted: 12th Dec, 2004 By: MarkJ
Cable Forum reports that NTL has issued additional comment on its plans for next years updated broadband caps. For those that can't remember; the newer 1Mbps product would be limited to 5GB per month, 2Mbps to 30GB and 3Mbps to 40GB:

We asked Chief Executive of ntl Simon Duffy last month about the new speeds and their usage restrictions, he said: “The usage caps will be as you mention – they are much more generous than Wanadoo’s. I think the market needs to accept that the days of unlimited usage for all are over. The vast majority of users will not be impacted by the limits, but the small number who regularly use GB by the ton drive our costs up significantly and, since we are not a charity, we need to recover them somehow. It doesn’t seem fair to ask the majority of moderate users to subsidise the small number of heavy users and usage caps are the best way to ensure fair treatment for all.”

We’re still a little confused by why it leaps from a cap of 5GB (1Mbps) to 30GB (2Mbps).
