    what people aren't saying is that to get charged for the usage, you have to do it for 3 CONSECUTIVE months. Use your heads guys, it's to get rid of piracy.

    If you have uverse, and you use over 250 gigs a month, shame on your *** anyway.

    No it's not three consecutive months-you get charged the third month in the life of your AT&T account. They do not forgive overage by you falling back into your cap.

    Also dslreports.com and stopthecap.com have major articles about the meters being significantly inacurate in AT&Ts favor.

    unfortunately, you're wrong. In order to be charged, the customer has to have proven overages in 3 consecutive months.

    and not to sound too uptight, but an article from stopthecap.com and dslreports.com hardly say "unbiased"...speaking of....

    "DDWRT is wrong by default. AT&T is monitoring the ATM interface on the DSLAM. Those numbers will be *insanely* inflated. First by the overhead of ATM/AAL5. Then by cell padding. EVERY cell is 53bytes -- 5 byte header (AAL5) 48 byte payload. Even if there's only 3 bytes in the payload, you transfered 53bytes; you're charged for 53bytes. The overhead is, well, a lot."

    overhead = [roundup((ppp frame+8)/48) * 53] - [ppp frame]

    Check your facts. You're welcome.

    Yea, ATM overhead will definitely make it look like it's metered in AT&T's favored.
