UPDATE: Smart move today by Comcast. Comcast announced they were bumping the previous 300GB monthly data caps to 1000GB/month. The change takes effect June 1.
OK, they won me back by making this move. 1000GB is clearly enough to do everything but the heaviest streaming and 24/7 gaming. In my household 1000GB is plenty.
According to Comcast, “the new limit would allow a household to download 60,000 high-resolution photos, stream 700 hours of high-definition video, and play 12,000 hours of online games in one month.”
I have to say I’m delightfully surprised by this news. Comcast, you just retained me as an Internet customer.

You gotta hand it to Comcast. About every six months to a year they come up with some hair brained idea to buck a few more dollars out of customers, particularly those like me who are only paying for streaming services. What they miss is this – you’re lucky that I’m even paying you for the streaming services. The time is coming when we will have better, faster, cheaper options. You should try to retain me right now, not alienate me in this changing world.
