Link Harvest: Cable Numbers and Metered Billing

More on the economics of cable broadband and whether they need to move to metered billing. this from CNET, hardly a radical leftist publication. Basically, looking at the quarterly reports, it doesn't add up.

The reason for TW to switch to metered billing is because (a) we can, and (b) that will help retain dominance in the delivery of video. We call this in economic terms "extraction of monopoly rents." Whether one considers it s problem, and what the solution should be, is always the fun question of public policy.
