[Y!] Comcast begins testing data caps in two cities - Page 12

post #111 of 153
I was gonna say, I have Comcast and have never reach the 250GB "limit" they used to or still have. That was with Netflix on the TV running , 2 computers folding 24/7(have to upload and download WU's, a third computer surfing the web 18 hours a day and 3 smartphones using the wifi. Speed has never been an issue either. I love my service. I pay $29.99 a month for my service(Performance) and its perfect.

I have Cox. No data cap, 25 down 3 up. $40 a month. Not too shabby~

A cap would kill me though because I download a lot of my games for PC and consoles digitally. Also netflix etc. With each game beiong 3-15GB that would go pretty fast.

House has Verizon FiOS, unlimited with no data caps.




Cell phone as AT&T, unlimited with no data caps.




If FiOS and AT&T both impose a data cap (which would be hard since I'm grandfathered in already), I'll switch to Comcast, which doesn't have a data cap. If Comcast imposes a data cap, then I'll switch to Sprint, which doesn't have a data cap. Etc, etc, etc.

Ya personally I would just stop having a cell phone if there was no provider without a cap to go to. As for internet I just hope to avoid them long enough until the Skynet that is google brings it service nationwide. There is no way google is going to sit by and let the archaic content providers that are cable companies try and stop us from using the internet to its proper potential. Though I am sure google will start exploiting us in other ways soon as we are saved from caps lol.

So just ONE notebook had a usage of 76gb?

Most consumers wouldn't need more than 20/20, because a lot of websites have transfer caps set at 2MB/s downloads. If you do a whole lot of torrenting then I could see getting a 100/100 connection.

I don't remember a single month in recent times where I didn't download at least 500gb of data.
