I can't find the 'fix' for it again. Its basically just acknowledge the pop up then go in your comcast email and acknowledge the message there, or delete it. I read it and then delete it and its worked the past couple months.
It had a few websites you could go to that seem to force the pop up. Or just have a greater chance of getting the pop up. I can't find it again though.

So I know comcast does not intentionally throttle. But, after I hit 80% I get a effect that causes a throttle. After some trouble shooting and google I found it had something to do with the pop up message that they push to your browser stating 80% or 90% or whatever. The problem I have is that to make the throttle stop you have to acknowledge this message and acknowledge the email they give you. For some reason even though I went past 80% I did not get that 80% message and the email alone does not seem to clear up the throttle (again its some sort of problem with the forced message causing a throttle like effect on things like netflix). I was able to clear it up the past 2 months but now that i have not recieved the pop up (possibly because I had ad blocks on even though they are off now) I cant seem to clear it up.
And before you argue that this is not real, every month after I hit 80% netflix goes to garbage and it has NO problems till after I hit 80%. Every call to comcast says the company line of 'we dont throttle' and yet they cant do anything to fix it. I had to find the fix online that actually works. So, any suggestions on how to force that stupid 80% pop up message if I miss it some how?
