said by tshirt:Never will happen. Many customers may never use 20 GB a month. Comcast isn't going to give them internet for $5 a month. said by Skippy25:
Right.... so where is the price cut for those that dont use nearly that much as 300GB?
Could happen any day.
Say a flat $0.25 per GB would be great for me.
Besides even on utilities, with my gas company you will pay $7 month even if you use no gas what so ever. The amount you pay for unit of usage is added to that $7. Water company is the same. The lowest you bill will be if you have service $30 a month. Even if you went a way for a month and didn't use a drop of water. The difference between the water and gas is with the water you get to use X amount of gallons( or whatever unit they use ) before they start charging you more than the $30 and I said with the gas you get charged immediately.
So if Comcast did ever go to a pay per bit usage there still would some sort of base charge. Also the per bit charges would probably be higher on those that used less. But I doubt it happens because people like certainty in the bills. right now you know you internet bills will be X amount. You can plan for that. Not one month it this amount because you used 27 GB and next month it's that amount because you used 35 GB.
I totally agree. see below
Skippy is the one with limited reasoning skills or perhaps it's greedy self interest AGAIN.

My local water utility has an even worse policy. There is a minimum monthly fee assessed against the property even if the water service has been turned off. It is simply a hidden property tax.
