Do you want to pay extra for data? Then Comcast has a deal for you

Do you want to pay extra for data? Then Comcast has a deal for you | News | Scoop.it

Comcast will start enforcing a 300GB data cap in Atlanta next month, with overages resulting in extra charges of $10 for each additional 50GB.

 

The move expands the list of cities subject to Comcast's data overage charges. In May 2012 the company raised its data cap from 250GB to 300GB while getting more serious about penalizing customers who go over the new limit.

 

Caps were in place in Nashville, Tennessee, and Tucson, Arizona, a year ago.

 

"The 300GB has been in trials in Nashville for some time, but back in August Comcast expanded these trials into the Central Kentucky; Savannah, Georgia; and Jackson, Mississippi markets," DSLReports wrote today.

 

The report pointed to a notice to Atlanta customers posted by a reddit user, saying the data overage charges will take effect December 1. A Comcast pricing FAQ updated yesterday said, "The data amount included with all XFINITY Internet tiers will be 300GB per month. We will offer additional gigabytes in increments/blocks of 50GB for $10 each." That pricing applies to Huntsville and Mobile, Alabama; Atlanta, Augusta, and Savannah, Georgia; Central Kentucky; Maine; Jackson, Mississippi; Knoxville and Memphis, Tennessee; and Charleston, South Carolina.

 

 

drnewmedia's insight:

With Comcast now putting a 300gb data cap on Atlanta I guess it may be time to stop using Netflix and Facetime until a better solution turns up. There is no way to stay under 300gb for the “real” average user that has a family and uses Comcast for Internet and avoid the new overage fees.
