Re: Comcast Xfinity for Xbox launching soon (possibly next week)

said by Master Wolfe:

I'm a bit confused. I can use my Xfinity app on my Android phone anywhere, but I can't use my Xbox anywhere. Not sure I understand your comparison.

Sure, I get that. What I'm saying is that if I use that app at home, on the same network my Xbox lives on, why does the traffic then count but the Xbox's doesn't? It never leaves Comcast's internal network either way, and that's the argument they're using to say the Xbox doesn't count.

And then, if you accept that it seems odd, where do you draw the line? Why does sending a file or email from my PC to another Comcast user's PC count against the cap? After all, it never left their network.
