[dslreports]Comcast Considering 250GB Cap, Overage Fees - Page 3

yeah the US has some pretty intense net neutrality rules that the ISP's are trying to get around... especially comcast. A cap would be violating net neutrality, are they really even allowed to do this?

anyway I think a 250gb is actually a great place to put the limit. That will pretty much only effect major torrent uploads and the such. Even people who download a lot of torrents probably dont go through 8gb per day. i think the most ive ever used in one day was like 5 or 6. and that was one day... not every day for a month

Thats pretty much the fastest you get in Ireland
comcast's highest package is 12 MB, my pops in chicago just had his upgraded and he says it fricken flys much better than even when i was there 2 years ago and even then, it was still fast.

Ewww.... Caps... I may be getting 6Mbps down/512K up, but no caps are better than high speeds with caps.

Thats weak man.. i don't even have cable tv and my internet costs me 63 dollars a month.. and i still get 200ish pings and whatnot.. very unreliable connections.. slow downloads most of the time.

I'm really getting sick of corporations and the government.

Well i think another part of the issue is 90% of their customers are paying for the top 10% or maybe even 5% of there usage.

As far as i know net neutrality doesn't have anything to do with bandwidth at least on the generic scale. now bandwidth to certain sites or w/e yes.

personally id be surprised if they don't just eventually say, ok u can either pay 10cents per gig a month, or w/e cost it would be minus a little discount if you downloaded 24/7.

Bad for people who run dedicated servers at home. Not much else though.

All I know is that if Comcast makes their service any worse than it already is, I'm moving to AT&T. It's twice as cheap for a better upload and losing only 2mb on download (from 8mb to 6mb).

This is bad because more and more people will start to download movies off the internet legaly thru itunes and other services depending how many you watch a month you could go over the 250gig cap pretty easy. But also depends on the size of movies you have to download to.
