Comcast boosts monthly data cap to 1TB

2016-04-28 17:06 by


Comcast has good news for its customers. Starting from June 1, the company will increase its data cap more than three times, reaching 1TB. Customers in Florida, Georgia, Maine and Virginia will be able to take advatnage ot the new cap.

This is a huge increase, pushing the limit up from the current 300GB limit. The company claims that the new cap shouldn't be a problem.

"Today, more than 99 percent of our customers do not come close to using a terabyte," Comcast executive vice president Marcien Jenckes says. A typical customer, Jenckes writes, only uses "six percent" of a terabyte each month.

"What can you do with a terabyte? A whole lot," Comcast said in a post announcing the change. "You can stream about 700 hours of HD video, play 12,000 hours of online games, and download 60,000 high-res photos in a month."

Users who want more data can sign up for an unlimited plan (an extra $50 per month) or purchase additional buckets of 50GB for $10 each.
