Re: [Caps] Comcast New 300GB Monthly Limit And Overage Charges
FYI, the cap page was updated today with new info
That's quite some new info wrt the "Flexible-Data Option "
In the Fresno, California, market, we will begin trialing a Flexible-Data Option specifically designed for casual or light Internet users who typically use 5 GB of data or less a month. This option will be available only to Economy Plus customers and will provide a $5 credit if a customer%u2019s total monthly data usage is less than or equal to 5 GB per month. However, if a customer that chooses this option uses more than 5 GB of data in any given month, then she will not receive the $5 credit, and will be charged an additional $1 for each gigabyte of data used over the 5 GB included in the Flexible-Data Option.
In Central Kentucky, Savannah, GA and Jackson, MS, we will begin a trial which will increase our data usage allowance for all XFINITY Internet tiers to 300 GB per month and also offer additional gigabytes in increments/blocks (e.g., $10 per 50 GB). During this trial, XFINITY Internet Economy Plus customers in these markets can choose to enroll in the Flexible-Data Option which will modify their data usage allowance from 300 GB to 5 GB, and provide a $5 credit if their total monthly data usage is less than or equal to 5 GB per month. If customers choose this option and uses more than 5 GB of data in any given month, then they will not receive the $5 credit and will be charged an additional $1 for each gigabyte of data used over the 5 GB included in the Flexible-Data Option.
We believe that the approach we are taking with our data trials is fair because it means those who use more pay more and those who use less can now pay less.
Wow. On the flex plan 100GB over = $100 (- your 5 credit lol)
And $20 with the other trial.

Yes, and there is a new page on the expanded trial markets here: »customer.comcast.com/help-and-su···pansion/
There is also an article about this on the MCN site this morning:
