Nationwide Comcast test/trial 300GB cap with additional charges.

So we got the letter in the mail at my house yesterday. Sure they say that they are testing it, but it does give an idea of what the future holds (pay per use). And with the way things are moving (into the cloud) - the more data that users puts into a cloud service, the more they may end up paying to back-up, sync and restore it.

The cap is more likely about them losing revenue from their cable T.V. service because people are cutting the cord and streaming video through the internet instead...

However, downloading video from Comcast over its new Xfinity On Demand service for the Xbox 360? Exempt.

Why Comcast really cares about data caps and tiered plans
