first i know can pay $50 more to get get the service allready pay for,which drives bills to 149.95 a month for just internet . a few problems with that first that not what i signed up for .i signed up for bandwidth not data. to stay under your bandwidth cap you have to no more than 5Mb/s service .They need to need to be honest with poeple and tell them . next there memo about all this has been leaked and they admit this is pure 100% profit motive nothing to due with bandwidth issues .there network can handle 100 terabytes per seconds, this is nothing but taking advantage of the fact that there a monoply in most cities.plus they havent upgrade the hardware in my city in 30 years .the speed increase have been done via software compression.with the new Docsis standard that coming the can make it 10x faster and never spend a dime. next we all know this going to get worst now as incoming FCC hate any rules on ISP's, we towards rank at the bottom in the world in affordable internet unlimited plans 1 G/s japen $9.99 1 G/s Korea $12.99 1 Gig/s finland,sweden.france,netherlands.poland.germany $14.99 100 Mps iceland,belgium.austria $19.99 75 Mpbs COMCAST usa $149,99 1gig/s Google usa $69.99 So please dont act like Comcast is doing me a favor by giving me 1tera without giving you more money. than try to just heavy users how about we call it what it is poeple that dont want to be beholden to comcast for tv

I Dont care what that rule says. i pay for a fixed speed not amount of data so your gas story doesnt apply. 1 terabyte cap = 4mb/sec . i pay for 75 Mbps that = 22.8 TB per month. we use little over 1 terabyte every 9 days .i have 5 teenage kids plus wife and i work differnet shifts .(we are cord cutters which this data cap is actual about.) we have at minium one hd stream going in house 24/7 sometimes on a saturday there maybe 3 hd streams going. 2 music streams and a few games being played. That we i paid for 75 Mbps so i can saturate if need. there cost if i use every bit of bandwidth is same if i use none. they make around 62.00 a month profit on just me according to there 3rd quater/2016 sec filling they made 1.4 BILLION on 4.1 billion income a 14.2% increase in profits. and there stock threw the roof now becuse they asume FCC going away as far as internet goes.we will really in really bad shape than. How is it in korea,japen,sweden to name a few they get 1 gig up/down for $35 a month and make money. They should be forced to break internet off into seperate independant company.
