AT&T and Verizon defend data caps on home Internet service

(Ars): http://arstechnica.com/business/2014/09/att-and-verizon-defend-data-caps-on-home-internet-service/

   "Still, the companies want the ability to charge heavy broadband users
    extra in the future, just as they do today with their cellular
    offerings. In filings with the FCC posted on the commission's website
    yesterday, AT&T and Verizon object to proposals by Netflix and others
    that would include data caps in the FCC's definition of broadband. The
    definition affects the FCC's analysis of nationwide broadband
    deployment, and companies that accept Universal Service funds when
    building networks in rural areas must match the standard."
