I just made the following thread, but I'm guessing it will get taken down. Here's my story and why I think the cap is terrible.
"There is no technical reason as to why Xfinity imposes a data cap. The only reason it exists is to prey on customers, like myself, who use more bandwidth. Anyone who is interested in online gaming, 4k streaming, or content creation is subjected to the additional $50 on top of the already high prices of Xfinity's service.
A bit about me. I am a veteran that struggles with issues from my service. I used to use content creation (streaming to Twitch and uploading to YouTube) as a means to escape. Its soothing for me to play a game and chat with others. I say used to because I started going over on my data cap. Now I can no longer stream because of the charges I would incure.
Why don't I change providers? Because the only other ISP in my area is CenturyLink. CenturyLink only offers a low speed connection that I wouldn't be able to stream over. I am currently trying to get a municiple initive to bring in a local fiber provider to the area. Hopefully, in time, we can get an ISP that cares about providing service. Comcast doesn't care about it's customers (I'm proof), they only care about squeezing every dollar they can out of you."
