Japanese Telco Plans Upload Limit

Susan Hall

As telcos in the United States take heat for considering bandwidth caps, one in Japan has announced a daily upload limit beginning Aug. 1, reports Ars Technica.


OCN, operated by NTT Communications, will limit uploads to 30 gigabytes daily, which the post describes as plenty for even heavy peer-to-peer users. Downloads will remain unlimited on NTT's 100Mbps fiber-optic connections.


In comparison, Time Warner recently began testing metered service in Beaumont, Texas, with downloads of 40 gigabytes a month costing $55, and $1 a gigabyte for going over.
