I just posted in another thread my experience on this terabyte cap. We use Netflix maybe 10 hrs a month on a busy month, don't stream music, download videos, have a security camera or any of that. 2 people living here who don't get home from work till 8 or 9 PM. We're rarely home, rarely use the internet except for reading news. Yet, we just got a 90% warning. I checked my router. No one else is logged in using our data and I'm left to believe that 1 terabyte to Comcast must be equal to 1 gigabyte.

It's 2017 and we have a cap of 1024 GB. According to a post by a comcast employee couple of years ago when the cap was 300GB, we should be able to: •Stream between 117 and 289 two-hour movies, depending on HD or SD •Download between 68 and 180 two-hour movies, depending on HD or SD •Stream more than 5,500 hours of music •Make nearly 4,300 twenty minute video-to-video calls •Upload or download 20,000 hi-res photos •Download between 40,000 to 93,000 eBooks •Send more than 585,000,000 Tweets
TIMES 3 because that's for 300GB.
Now us. On a busy week, we use the internet roughly 30 hrs a week to READ plain TEXT, never download videos or stream music, watch Netflix maybe 10 hours a month on a busy month, and maybe 4 hrs a month watching youtube. That's it. Only two people live here and we don't get home from work until 8 or 9 meaning there is little time to do anything on the internet. And in other words, we are non-users. yet we just got a 90% warning from Comcast. We logged into the router and could not see anyone else connected to our router. So it doesn't appear anyone is piggybacking on us. I downloaded the Comcast app so I can see usage. They do not show minute by minute which they need to, but I'll fight that battle later. I could see that the previous 2 months were high as well, but not high enough to get the 90% warning. So something has been "bleeding our lines" for a long time. And I need Comcast to put a cork in it.
