Beginning in January, Comcast will introduce its 1.2 TB data cap on Xfinity Internet plans, including those in states where Comcast previously did not have a cap.
The change affects Xfintiy customers in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia, as well as parts of North Carolina and Ohio.
To no surprise, Comcast users are already expressing outrage after the company announced the change on the Xfinity website, deriding it as a cash grab. However, the company says the vast majority of affected subscribers, at 95 percent, never use more than 1.2TB of data, even as millions of Americans are stuck at home during the pandemic.
Though the change goes into effect on January 2021, subscribers who go over the limit won't actually be billed the extra charges until March, giving them a chance to get familiar with the change. Starting in March, non-unlimited customers who exceed 1.2TB a month will be charged $10 per additional 50GB of data over that limit. The maximum additional charge per month is $100.
