"Instead, what we most often see are low caps and high overages layered on top of already high existing flat rate pricing, raising rates for all users. Does raising rates on a product that already sees 90% profit margins sound like 'fairness' to you?"

So, isn't this where the free market steps in with its invisible hand to lower prices? If margins are so high, why don't investors jump into the market with new start-ups that undercut Time Warner until the price reaches a fair level that allows everyone involved to just make what they are worth?
