    AT&T CEO backs metered billing, sees no iPad woes – MarketWatch 

    Other top executives at AT&T, including wireless chief Ralph de la Vega, and Verizon Wireless have recently argued in favored of tiered pricing models similar to how most consumers pay for gas or water usage.

    via AT&T CEO backs metered billing, sees no iPad woes – MarketWatch.

    Two points

    1. This pricing should only be in place if people who really use very little pay very very little.  It’s an arbitrary number, but I think $5 for for 200 MB should be good, $10 for 1GB, $15 – 2GB, $20 – 3GB.  I think you see where this is going.
    2. Users are not locked into a data plan.  So users who use less in a month are good, and in months where they go data heavy they pay for it.

    Sound off what do you think?

    Verizon CTO sees eventual move to metered broadband 

    Verizon CEO sees eventual move to metered broadband

    “the concept of a flat-rated infinitely expanding service for everyone just won’t work.”

    I tend to agree with that statement because despite advances in networking technology there are always new services which rise up to take advantage of newer broadband offerings.  Essentially there may come a day where the heavy broadband users subsidize the cost of newer infrastructure.
