Comcast to Upgrade Data Cap

Earlier this week Comcast announced that their long time standing 250 gigabyte data cap will increase to 300 gigabytes of data. Also instead of cutting off anyone that exceeds this cap twice in a six month period; they now plan to charge an overage charge of $10 per fifty gigabytes, very much like ones issued on a smartphone data plan. This is really good news to anyone who has trouble managing their data usage. Comcast is finally coming to a realization that streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, and Pandora are using increasing amounts of data especially if utilizing the high-definition features site like this offer. One could say that after 4 years of letting the cap lay at 250 gigabytes that this increase was in fact a long time coming.
