Re: Bandwidth Limits - Comcast vs. Verizon FiOS/Cox/ATT

said by sturmvogel:

If you look at the TOS with FIOS or any residential connection, you will notice that they all virtually have the same thing.
Could the poster please be so kind to show us a link where there is a cap specified on FiOS, I would like to see what it is.

Thank you.

You also may not exceed the bandwidth usage limitations that Verizon may establish from time to time for the Service.

But is does not say what that bandwidth usage limitation is (or are)...

Moreover, I have never seen any restrictions such as:

"(Att at 50 gig, Cox cable at 150gig, and Verizon DSL at 200 gig)"

as posted by metal80772 above.

Cox: »ww2.cox.com//aboutus/policies/li···ons_0609

Updated recently for your viewing pleasure.. - caps are "restricted" based on plan. That doesn't mean that Cox is/has been actively enforcing those restrictions however.

ATT - is/has been evaluating using caps: »/r0/download/1···tcap.png

Whether or not it happens - (again there's that enforcement scenario) - is another question yet to be answered...

And evidently Verizon (as do all/most other ISPs, I'm sure) also has that "vague" cap/limitation clause in their TOS to cover any scenarios where they can terminate service in the event of "abuse" of said service. Apparently - Comcast's current definition of "abuse" is when someone approaches 3x their allotted/defined cap.

It'll be interesting to see how long Verizon holds out with regards to implementing caps. Not that it matters much to me as they're not available in my area anyway..

That was a good catch!

I don't think we've seen that data here before.

Thanks.
