TWC's $150 Unlimited Broadband: New Way to Fleece Customers

[qi:004] Time Warner Cable will offer users unlimited broadband for $150, it said last night when it released pricing plans for its metered broadband efforts.

A quick check this morning shows that the pricing isn’t just a 285 percent increase over my current $39 a month (previously unlimited) broadband package, it’s also the perfect amount to keep Time Warner’s revenue stream intact should I start consuming all my video and voice via my broadband connection, rather than by purchasing a triple-play bundle.

Buying all three services as part of a triple play would cost me $139.95 a month — $10 less than it would cost to consume anything and everything via broadband without fear of caps. Coincidence?
