Comcast Caps: Scared Yet?

Comcast has come clean about their plans to cap usage on its broadband service. Starting in October, if you use more than 250GB of bandwidth in a month, you’ll get a talking-to. Cross that threshold twice in six months and they’ll kick you off the service, for a year. They’ve issues new Acceptable Use Policy and FAQ documents to try to sugar-coat this as a limit that most people will never hit.

The last time we covered this story, readers were mildly outraged. Now that we’re starting to see specific numbers associated with specific services, it’s easier to get a sense of whether you’ll be affected. Does 250GB per month worry you? If it does, leave us a note – and hop over to our parent blog GigaOM, which is challenging people to come up with plausible ways to cross the threshold.
