Comcast Increases Data Limit From 250GB To 300GB

Posted May 17, 2012

Comcast has increased the data limits from 250GB to 300GB. The reason for the change is because of video streaming devices like the iPad and Roku box, which is known for consuming lots of data. “Four years ago, when we first instituted a broadband Internet data usage threshold, the iPhone had just been introduced?the iPad didn?t exist?and the experience of watching streaming video on your home PC or through a Roku box or direct to an Internet-capable TV was much different than it is now,” said Comcast. If you want to go over the 300GB data cap, you can buy additional blocks of data at $10 per 50GB.
