Annoying Buckeye Broadband Data Cap Warning

Ugh....Buckeye Broadband has the most annoying message flashing when you are approaching the data cap limit. It used to be that you could click an acknowledgement once or twice and be done with thew warning.

Now, the warning pops up every five minutes or so for an instant, especially if you are on a page and remain on it for a few minutes. The effect is almost like a subliminal message: quick image, then gone. It comes and goes so fast that it is even hard to get a screenshot, but I finally managed one:

Buckeye Broadband

Anyone else getting this annoying message every few minutes? It happens no matter what browser I use, and it also appears on my phone when I have the phone synced to the WiFi.

I had Buckeye 1 until a few weeks ago, I believe it was $85 a month for my bill. Buckeye 1 was 50Mbps DL and 5 Mbps UL.

I called and dropped to a new plan that was 50Mbps DL and only 3Mbps UL and I upgraded to the unlimited plan for an additional $20 and I believe my new bill will only be $5-10 more, so worth it IMHO.

Maybe now I can start watching GoT and binge watch all 6 seasons without having to worry about going over.

I get that popup, which is annoyingly intrusive, once, hit OK, it goes to another page, I hit OK again, then it goes to the page I wanted.

This only happens whenever I hit whatever increment Buckeye deems worthy of my attention.

I've been getting it too. Thinking about leaving Buckeye for ATT. They seem cheaper and offer more. What's been your experience with them?
