Bandwidth: Frontier puts a lid on it

Regional ISP Frontier Communications is telling customers in its Rochester, N.Y., market that they'll be allowed 5 GB of bandwidth a month, or they'll have to face the consequences. Although the company hasn't yet decided just what those consequences may be, they've posted a notice to their website warning of service suspension, service termination or additional fees.

Time Warner Cable--which happens to be Frontier's only competition in Rochester--also has floated the idea of imposing service caps, and is testing them in Beaumont, Texas.
