Usage Caps Hello everyone! I'm new to Comcast, coming over from Charter. I was wondering if they're any usage caps? Thanks for the info!

Hello everyone! I'm new to Comcast, coming over from Charter. I was wondering if they're any usage caps? Thanks for the info!
I've also heard that business class connections are exempt from the 250 cap, but they, of course, cost you more then a home connection.
Hope that helps.
Edit: Comcast is supposed to be coming out with a monitor to help you with your monthly usage, but as of yet, there's no monitor and no word on when it's coming, so you have to monitor yourself with tools like
DUMeter (Paid) : »www.dumeter.com/
NetMeter, clone of DUMeter (Free) : »www.metal-machine.de/readerror/
Both of these programs are very configurable, but only monitor per computer usage, not everything that comes across the connection if you have a router, etc.
So you'll need something for your router that has a bandwith monitor on it. Two I recommend are Tomato: »www.polarcloud.com/tomato
And DD-WRT v24SP1 or later found here: »dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/dd-wrt/downloads.html
Good luck and welcome to Comcast!
Re: Usage Caps Yup that helps a lot! Thanks... that's the same cap as I was under with Charter. I was just wanting to make sure I'm good. I never used more than 40-50gigs a month on two computers!
| Supposedly the cap is 250 GB/month but from what I've observed on this site, it's not super-strictly enforced.|
Edit - I was too slow!
