[Caps] "Flexible-Data Option" in Fresno, CA

I just found this on the Comcast site. I never heard of it. It seems to be new. I'm not in CA so it doesn't apply to me but I thought it was interesting.

»customer.comcast.com/help-and-su ··· aoption/

Is anyone in Fresno and got an email about it? I'd like to know if they said anything else interesting.

It looks like they are copying TimeWarner Cable, which has been testing that in a few areas for over a year.

I like the way they HIDE the $1 per GB overage down in the seperate FAQ link and are not forthcoming in the main text about it.

There is an article about this on the MCN site today:
