Sound Bytes Airs Sundays at 12 Noon on WHAM-AM 1180 Rochester, NY

Sound Bytes, the longest running computer and technology-related radio show we know of anywhere (nearing its 20th anniversary), spent an hour recently discussing Time Warner’s plan to impose punitive usage caps on Internet users in the Rochester area.

The program, heard Sunday at 12 noon on 50,000 watt WHAM-AM 1180, devoted the better part of the hour to the subject, and they were skeptical at best.

A clip of the portions pertaining to Time Warner is available below.

    Too bad a transcript of the program isn’t available. I would like to read it.

  2. Carlos says:

    I live in Austin, Texas and my city is next to be in this Corporate Scheme to Cap internet use, and this is just another way to empty our pockets for service we already pay a lot for. So is there a chapter here in Texas especially around Austin to start a petition to stop this insane cap?
