BY Andrew Miesner / April 2, 2009

TimeWarner Cable released more info on their new plan to switch from a flat fee rate to a metered system later this year. Starting this summer, the company will ask users to review their usage and pick a plan from 5 gigabytes to 100 gigabytes. If customers use more gigabytes than their plan allows, they’ll have to pay for overages.

Company spokesman Alex Dudley had this to say:

Customers will be given a three-month grace period to review their gigabyte usage before billing begins this fall under the new plan.

Customers can choose from the following five plans: 5 gigabytes for $29.99, 10 gigabytes for $39.99, 20 gigabytes for $49.99, 40 gigabytes for $54.90 or 100 gigabytes for a price yet to be determined. Dudley said all prices are estimates.
