NorthwesTel has dropped its Internet overage fees for exceeding Internet data allowances by $0.50 per gigabyte.

The change affects DSL and cable Internet packages for residential and small business customers.

The charge for most cable packages is now $2.50 per gigabyte, with the premium package set at $2 per gigabyte.

Overage on DSL Internet will now run at $3 per gigabyte.

As recently as 2012 NorthwesTel charged $10 per gigabyte of data over the amount allotted in your package. Prices have dropped a few times since then.

Monthly data allowances have doubled on average in the same time frame, according to a news release.

“With these changes, we’ve steadily reduced the number of customers paying overage fees and lowered costs for those users who may continue to exceed their growing monthly allowances,” said NorthwesTel president Paul Flaherty in the release.

“These enhancements, along with faster Internet speeds, will ultimately deliver more value and a better Internet experience for our residential and small business customers.”

The new rates took effect automatically as of Feb. 1.
