Re: AT&T broadband users will soon face a cap on the amount of internet data they can download a

You'd think that with all the heat AT&T is getting, they'd seriously reconsider this option. My dad has been on AT&T for about 5 months now because of the outrageous charges we keep getting. Dude, seriously, who do they have in mind with the 150 Gb limitation? We're no longer in the dark ages of the internet, so seriously, you'd think they'd get rid of the data usage limitation. And the problem that my family is having is that my father attempted to barter with AT&T by offering to pay a cap fee for the extra Gb that we use. He told them, "Fine, I'll pay $10 or $20 extra per month so I can use more than 150 Gb. How's that?" Nope that doesn't work either because AT&T has not thought up that option. They don't have that plan so we can't do that either. So instead, my dad has to fight with AT&T every month so that we don't have to pay the extra fee that they put on us or so that we can get a D/C. It's ridiculous because we've been with AT&T since they were Bellsouth; you'd think that since we've been such loyal customers for so long, they'd treat us better. We'd like to switch to another company that doesn't employ such caps, but unfortunately, we live in a sparsely resided area so we don't even have the option. Does anyone have a really good idea as to how we can get AT&T to listen to us and stop this?
