Seems AT&T is going to put a cap on data usage on their DSL and Uverse customers.
150 GB for DSL and 250 for Uverse.

I guess it all depends... do you actually use anywhere near 150 gigs in a month? If you do, switch. But most folks don't come anywhere near that.

No kidding, however people like me are screwed: Cloud-backup + Hulu + NetFlix == U-Verse fail (250GB cap).

Yea most months I don't go near that but I have and can. On a good side the overages at least are not as crazy as some others(10 bucks for another 50 gigs).

Still happy I'm on verizon and they haven't pulled this crap yet. Been happy with my fios so far.

The residential gateway AT&T provides will do it. I just use my routers built-in feature that I reset every month.

I just got a new router a few months back. I will have to check it.

I will be real close to this 150gig cap, just reset the router stats will see if i go over. Between uploading video, 1 roku, 1 boxee box, 1 apple TV and 4 computers this does not look good.

AT least Comcast has a 250 gig cap

Dang, I'd blow through those caps within a week or two. Sound Cloud and... porn... or just porn... whatever.
