Comcast is expanding its new billing plan that charges users for going over a certain amount of Internet data.
Sourced through Scoop.it from: mashable.com
Comcast set to charge cable customers $30 more (no cap) for Internet usage over 300 GB of data. Recent earnings reports show Cable cutters are not as high as previously thought. Comcast is giving cable cutters something to think about, if wanting to cut cable TV and keep the Internet… there’s a price you may have to pay. Comcast customers will be charged an additional $10 for every additional 50 GBs (over 300 GB) of data usage, or can choose to pay the additional $30 (optional) for no cap whatsoever.
What this boils down to is Comcast is losing money. They want to tell you what you can and cannot watch online, with their ISP service, when putting a cap on the amount of data usage you can use, whereas there shouldn’t be any cap in the first place. Where is Congress?
If household members are connecting to the Internet and use more than 300 GB of data usage, which is likely to happen, then you will be affected by this increase.
