Remember how all those ISPs and broadband providers have been so sure that metered billing and metered broadband is the solution? Yeah, well, perhaps not. Time Warner Cable got scared off by negative publicity, and as was rumored earlier this year, AT&T has ended its metered broadband trials that got so much attention two years ago. Of course, unlike the start of the trials, the end has received almost no attention at all -- perhaps because AT&T never told anyone. It's also a bit amusing that this is happening at the same time that AT&T is switching to metered billing for iPhone data plans...
