The FCC won’t let Charter/Time Warner put data caps on internet plans

If you’re a broadband subscriber at one of those companies, here’s what that means for you: Go ahead and stream all you want, all the time — your internet company can’t penalize you for bandwidth consumption. New rules from the Federal Communications Commission mean that Charter Communications “will not be permitted to charge usage-based prices or impose data caps” for at least seven years after the merger. – Peter Kafka, Re/code
