Charter ISP Enforced Strict Data Caps & Bandwidth Throttling

Internet service provider updated its policy called “No Excessive Use of Bandwidth”, making the heaviest of bandwidth consumers face tough monthly data caps and so-called “protocol agnostic” bandwidth throttling within the peak hours. Charter has announced it’s planning to start selecting group of users with excessive use and make them aware of their patterns as soon as next month.


Charter Cable has joined the team of broadband providers establishing monthly data allotments trying to tackle network congestion in the beginning of last year. However, until now they have had a kind of “soft” caps only, which have been enforced in the most blatant cases. Today it is clear that this time is over.

Last week the ISP updated its bandwidth policy, forcing its subscribers to face Internet suspension after they have been notified 3 times in a 6-month period that they’ve surpassed their monthly cap. Besides, heavy users will face so-called “protocol agnostic” bandwidth throttling.

The new policy says that managing the network is crucial to ensuring that all users have an enjoyable experience of using the web. The new limits, specified in the policy, are designed to ensure that all customers can obtain optimal service levels.

Meanwhile, observers point out that in the situation when some subscribers use more bandwidth than others it’s better to consider a constant upgrade in order to tackle peak hour periods with most users online simultaneously. The fact that some users consume more data does not necessarily mean that they cause more cost.

In December the ISP will start an investigation on the issue of its customers with excessive use in order to notify them about their usage patterns and thus help identify the causes of the problem.

Actually, you only need to spend a few dollars to purchase hardware needed to add capacity to your household, and the price is constantly decreasing along with improving technology. Even a year ago Comcast estimated the cost at average $6.85 per household to double the current bandwidth, and the figure has dropped and least by a quarter since then. It makes sense to consider how much you spend on your broadband connection per month, and this will make you stop thinking that your broadband provider is concerned over a few dollars.

SnakeyB avatarThanks SaM,
Lets forget about p2p for a second, and look at online TV and movie sellers such as NetFlix and others. Also online gaming on your Comp, XBox, Playstation, Wii etc. We also have DS and Laptops that are setup to our internet connection. Even without using them they are constantly checking for connections and using a tiny amount of bandwith 24hrs a day. So with them alone I am above Canada's new DSL usage amounts of 60Gig/month within 1-2 weeks.
Now with p2p I am over the amount in a few days, so I might as well just realize I am paying the Max amount of overage a month and just stop worrying about my usage. Or with the amount of money that they have been getting for years they could of actually reinvested that money to have a system in place to handle all the bandwidth and speed they promised us in the first place, instead of private jets and private golf course memberships.
OK Rant over,
S.B. :D

menahunie avatarSnakeyB - You hit the nail on the head.
They refuse to update their network - The Cable Companies and demand continued high profits.

The really surprising thing is allot of people have forgotten all about the TELEPHONE COMPANIES.

I got sick and tired of the crap from the cable company and dumped them.
I went to ADSL+2 at 40.00 unlimited 13mbps down and 2mbps up for a number of years now. I move huge data files to and from work and the phone company hasn't complained once. When I was in town my download speed was 13mbps and when I moved out of town about 27 miles away I get 8mbps steady....
The freaking cable company I was lucky to get 2-3mbps and it wasn't steady.

Now near the end of the article it mentions a cable company stating by adding equipment a customer can increase their BANDWIDTH? SO WHAT when they cap the amount of data you can move per month. All the customer will do is hit their data cap allot sooner...
