This is in respones to my article I wrote back on May 18, 2011. I talked about how Comcast has a bandwidth limit of 250GB per month. Supposedly, if you go over this limit they give you a call to warn you. If you go over this limit again within 12 months, you are suspended for 1 year and cannot get Internet through Comcast!
As you can see in my old article, I used over 400GB of bandwidth in March. Now, for my next update, I used a whopping 1,195GB in the month of May! That comes out to almost a full 1.2TB used. Even after using this much bandwidth up, I still have not been called by Comcast.
After going over the 250GB limit twice within the last few months, I can only guess that Comcast maybe calls people who live in more populated areas. I have no idea how accurate my guess is, so please do not make any decisions to go over your bandwidth limit based off this article. Unless, Comcast has too many customers to call because that many people are going over? Otherwise, my other guess would be Comcast says they have a 250GB bandwidth limit but they don’t enforce it (which seems unlikely.)
Oh, FYI- if you’re wondering why I used so much bandwidth in May, it’s because I installed a new RAID card in my super computer and I had to redownload all my movies, TV shows, music, pictures, software, etc.
If you have Comcast, please let me know if you’ve ever gone over. Have you ever been called my Comcast?
