Time Warner Cable users will be limited to a 40GB download cap per month if the trials in Austin, San Antonio, and Rochester are successful. Overage charges will be $1 per excess gigabyte. This is in comparison to a 250GB cap from Comcast and no cap at all from Verizon Fios.
My usage of youtube, email attachments, patch and update downloads, multiplayer gaming, ventrilo, and especially streaming my favorite TV shows seems to be in very serious jeopardy if this cap is expanded to my area (L.A. County). Those who utilize online distribution of games and movies (legally) or look forward to OnLive may be in for some hard times.
