Across the country, Comcast is changing the idea of unlimited Internet, and now if you use more than 1.2 TB in a month, they’ll charge you extra. To the tune of $10 per 50GB. Now, as I covered in another news item this week, that means that if your neighbor’s Amazon Ring doorbell hooks onto your network, you’ll be paying for his bandwidth the next time someone pranks his house. NOT GOOD!
Comcast has vowed to enforce its 1.2TB-a-month download limit in more US states, expanding the policy to cover the nation’s northeast and mid-Atlantic corners.

From early next year, the Xfinity giant will cap subscribers in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont, and West Virginia, just as it does elsewhere in the country. Comcast has, until now, held off limiting download totals in these latest states where, we’re told, it faced some competition from Verizon.
