This is legal. I downloaded somewhere around 4TB for this project alone from april-december with adelphia. Add in some (still legal) videos and other stuff, and still adelphia never called or complained about abuse. I live in a pretty rural area, and AFAIK the network can handle it. (My adelphia was switched to comcast.)

Once again, legal or otherwise, it is all part of one's overall consumption..........

Its simple. If you are impacting the service of others you are asked to cease.

How can you tell?

None of the customers receiving calls were told that they were impacting the service of others.

You are just assuming that Comcast's network is so weak that use of 300 gigs a month would impact other users.

ping www.yahoo.com

Normally, 15 or 20 ms. During peak usage, I restrict my used bandwidth so as to not increase average latency from my modem to the other end more than 5 ms or so. If I have something large to D/L, I start it at bedtime and restrict it to 100 or 150 kbyte/sec. Spread it out a bit. I can tell when peak usage times are in my area by pinging something known and well connected. I make a conscious effort not to negatively impact my area.

Other than that, how is the average person supposed to determine if they are impacting the service of others? You can be D/Ling like an MF, and if you are still getting a round trip time to www.yahoo.com of 20 ms, you would have to assume that you aren't impacting anyone in a noticeable way.

Comcast should think more like you do. Users will be more enabled than punished.

My comments didn't really apply. They were directed at local usage, not shared usage.
