So a friend of mine talked to comcast today and was told that after the internet speeds we're done upgrading, that the 300 GB cap would be put in place.
But the thing is the thing was a bit different than what we we're told before.
Officially, we have not been told anything on what caps would end up being...before, or now. There's a couple of test markets, and even what they have tested may or may not resemble the final policy. Comcast has never said otherwise.
The problem with this stuff is who was your friend talking to, and how much "in the know" was that employee?
Where I work, this kind of unqualified information is just that...unqualified. I used to deal with calls from clients all the time stating that "One of your other employees told me..." Often, from a fellow employee who had no knowledge whatsoever about my department's proceedures and requirements. Just because they work for my company, does not necessarily mean that they know all current or pending policies. Sometimes folks just want to answer someone's question, to appear friendly or knowlegeable.
I would not get too happy...or upset about Comcast's cap plan...until they actually announce it. Anything else is just sheer speculation. Of course, I would be happier yet if they just never get around to re-introducing one...--
