Stop the Cap! Still Collecting Names of Those Interested in Fighting Cox Usage Caps in Cleveland

wews coxThis weekend will end the first phase of our campaign to fight Cox usage caps being tested in Cleveland, Ohio. We’re collecting the names and e-mail addresses of interested citizens that would like to participate in the fight to get Cox to drop its usage-based billing and overlimit fee scheme. If you are interested, use the link at the top to “Contact Us” as a volunteer and include your name and a valid email address.

Next week we will have an initial outline for an action plan with hopes of building a team of Cleveland-area Cox customers to lead the fight. Local participation and involvement is essential to win these battles, and we will expect the city’s Internet enthusiasts to run this effort themselves, with support from Stop the Cap! It’s your fight to preserve your uncapped broadband, so please get involved!

WEWS in Cleveland ran a story on Cox’s usage caps and interviewed Stop the Cap! about why usage-based pricing is typically a giant ripoff for customers. (2:12)

    Wish there was a way to fight this in Irvine, California.

    I just moved here and am stuck to Cox if I want decent internet speeds (AT&T only offers 1.5mbps here) so Cox has a monopoly on the residential area.

    Not only that but I didn’t learn about the caps until randomly browsing throughout the entire order and purchase not once was a data cap mentioned and I had assumed all of these had been done away with after comcast and timewarner stopped doing their caps.

    I work from home under a contract and as a Senior IT Specialist I’m downloading 40gb+ games once to twice a day, you can see how these data caps can impose real danger on me in this case.

    Not only that but for a business line they want $1,000+ something I can’t even afford and the company I work for wouldn’t even be willing to pay.

    So at the moment this can actually affect my job and end up with me having to leave it over not being able to get internet service where I’m living, as moving due to internet isn’t really something an apartment is going to allow I’m stuck in a huge pickle and wondering what I can do to fight these caps with cox any way I can participate in my area?
