Comcast Data Caps In More Markets Today

After trial runs of various data limits across the US, Comcast is now rolling out its data caps to more markets. Comcast is referring to this as a data plan, not a cap, but the end result is the same. Users who go over the data limits of their plan will be subject to additional charges, or users can opt to pay extra for unlimited data every month.

This isn't a surprising move as Comcast has always had data limits in place, though never enforced. The good news is the data plan provides significantly more data usage than most households will touch in a month. With 1 terabyte of data, Comcast says that more than 99% of customers will not use this in any given month, and thats easy to believe. 1 TB of data is like streaming HD video for more than 12 hours a day, every day of the month. Comcast has created an animation that shows just how much 1 TB really is.

While Comcast states that 99% of people won't touch 1 TB in a month, it certainly isn't impossible. In my home, we are a streaming only family. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, and YouTube, make up our TV options. Because of this our data usage is going to be much higher, and with 4 people streaming at any given point, its not hard to use a high amount of data.


As you can see, I've successfully broke the 1 TB limit this year, though only 1 time in the last 9 months. For me paying the one time fee for going over that limit would still be less expensive than paying for unlimited data with Comcast. This data reporting is from a Peplink router, which offers data monitoring tools monthly, daily, hourly, and by device.
