"It's inevitable that there will be a consumption dimension" to broadband billing, says Time Warner Cable (TWC) Chairman Glenn Britt. With Netflix (NFLX) being the most obvious home bandwidth hog - likely getting even bigger due to its new pricing plan - it's no wonder the company is loudly warning of the danger of usage-based pricing.

    More pathetic editorial comment to obviously spin an article which has potential negative effect on NFLX future:

     

    "With Netflix (NFLX) being the most obvious home bandwidth hog - likely getting even bigger due to its new pricing plan"

     

    How is NFLX going to get bigger in streaming when the price remains the same, $7.99? People who may have been considering it may defer because of the uncertainty of future pricing. Those who were thinking about $9.99 a month may decide not to subscribe.
