Re: Enforcement of the 250 GB data consumption is suspended.

said by telcodad:

What is starting on August 1st is a trial of a new data usage plan in the Nashville market, with a 300GB threshold and each additional 50GB block above that costing $10 each, as was discussed in this previous thread: »New bandwidth plan in Nashville

There is an article about this trial on the Light Reading Cable site today:

Comcast Turns On Usage-Based Broadband
By Jeff Baumgartner, Light Reading Cable - July 30, 2012
»www.lightreading.com/document.as···lr_cable

Comcast will also trial, in some other market, a tier-varying usage plan that has increasing data caps for different HSI tiers.

I can tolerate this some what but 300 is still not enough, it should be 500.

Yes, agreed.

It will be interesting to see what Comcast sets the progressive data allowances at for the tier-varying usage plan. I'm figuring that the (recently upgraded in NE US) Blast tier (50/10) will be given at least a 500GB allowance.

True. The caps exists because ISPs don't want to invest in their infrastructure to prevent last mile saturation. The practice of over-subbing nodes is not sustainable.
