Comcast plans to charge customers for exceeding bandwidth cap
Comcast recently announced that it might soon start charging additional costs to broadband Web subscribers who go more than their monthly bandwidth allowances. The cable operator presently suspends customers’ service if they repeatedly go more than their 250GB monthly information allowances rather than charging any penalties. Rather of capping broadband consumers at 250GB per month, nevertheless, Comcast plans to raise the cap to 300GB and charge $ ten for each 50GB block of information above that limit, Digital Trends reported. The adjust is currently getting tested with choose clients but if effective, the company plans to implement the adjust across its network. Comcast started capping data in 2008, and it claimed the measure was essential in order to manage its network.
