AT&T is putting a cap on data usage for DSL customers and charging a fee for anyone who goes over the limit.

AT&T says customers who use more than 150 gigabytes of data a month three times will be charged 10 dollars for every extra 50 gigabytes they consume.

The carrier says it will alert customers several times if they are near or exceeding the limit.

AT&T predicts less than 2 percent of its broadband customers will be affected by the policy.
