I am totally happy with WOW cables 15Mps plan, thought they have just added 30 and 50Mbps plans, and totally uncapped. The good thing i since adding the faster services, it made the other plans cheaper, and I received a $30 a month price cut. I was given the option of the price cut or upgrading to 50Mbps which is priced at the amount that I was paying for 15.

Wouldn't it just be quicker for the customer to go beyond it's data cap since they didn't also up the data cap.

Um, as the article says, they did raise the cap ... they doubled it.

There's still the issue of data caps, and like others, Charter makes its customers wear them. According to Charter's Acceptable Use Policy for residential customers, Lite and Express customers are not to exceed 100GB per month, Plus or Max subscribers are capped at 250GB, and Ultra100 subscribers are allotted 500GB per month.

 

So before , it was 50,125,250  respectively for each plan. Yikes. Read they double their bandwidth, but I don't see it saying they double their data allowance. Let me read it again.

I've had charter in the past and but in a differnt area and for the most part the speed then (3MBPS) was fast now the 12MBPS is really nice but the service in that area then wasnt as reliable as the service I am getting where I am now but its nice to see that we will be getting a speed increase! Now as far as the caps go, I've never had a problem and my household does a lot of streaming from Netflix, hulu, itunes etc and I've come close to the limit and some months exceded it but have never recieved a letter stating an over usage or anything. I've noticed higher rates in the past month and thats it but other than that this service is really great compared to other companies such as ATT and Comcast!

Here in Montreal we get 25Mb/sec down 7Mb up for a 75$ per month and the worst part is that at that price you only get 100GB a month and if you surpass it you will be charged 2.50$ per GB for a max of 60$...

Geez, they need to come to my town...

Not sure how much it is after the promo but 100Mbps for $60/mo is awesome. I am paying more than that now for half the download speed, double the upload, and half the cap.
