Time Warner $40M on Connectivity. $3 BILLION on TV!
arstechnica: Recently Time Warner attempted to introduce consumption-based Internet billing (metered Internet) using that old tired excuse about rising connectivity costs. In fact, most ISPs have been using the capacity excuse to throttle their users and use privacy invading technologies like deep packet inspection.
But accoring to Time Warner’s 2008 Annual Report it on spent $40 million on Internet connectivity while it poured over $3 BILLION into purchasing programming! The cost of Internet connectivity is NOT the problem. $3 BILLION to purchase programming that is available FREE online! Hmmm?
