Re: My experience with Comcast bandwidth suspension

I think Comcast is such a liar, sending to 1% of their customers, such B.S. they probably targeted the people who used 50%+ of their bandwidth total. Anyways, I don't really care, because I have make a few call and DSL is only a phone call away, about 3-4 days, only drawback is the $200 installation, maybe I will do it myself..sounds easy..Only Sad thing is that I still have not take the advantage of the upgrade yet, since I'm located in LA, if not..i guess 200x the minimum???LOL below is the attach DU Meter...

That letter says for November. In actuallity I think you will have a second one in the middle of January for your measly 126gb in December.

It's sad that Comcast mails out these letters when it's actually too late to make a change in your habits. In reality you only get one chance to change and not 2 it appears since these letters are being sent out the middle of the following month.

I got 2 250gb HD's filled to the max with just download porn alone, but in the eyes of comcast that's abuse.

Yes, you are absolute right, by then I have already cancel my business with them, I wonder if they still will send out that letter. Maybe I play a joke on them and leave a message on their messages receiver. I know this topic is not funny or exciting, it just that I done with FINALS for this semester at USC and also found out my friend will save me a ticket to the ROSE BOWL with good seating. It's PARTIES TIMES!!! Bye Bye COMCAST!!!

Hmm so just today i would have been in violation of their AUP i downloaded the latest rubies client at just under 400 megs and their test client the same size updated both wich was 3 patches of 80 megs per so my useage for road runner in one day was 1.23 gig 230 megs over your isp (comcast)s limit

To comcast
I think you are all the slime of the earth 1 gig tfer as shown above is easly doable in a days time.
Proof is in the jpgs deny it if yo like but 113 gigs and 126 gigs and you claim he has used 100 times the avrage.
How many users are you useing to get the avrage?

It would seem to me that you must be useing a sample size of 10 max thoose 10 are choosen because they are dling 3 gigs or less.

There is no question that you are simply doing this because you can.
You think theese people have no options but your wrong there im sure yeh leased lines such as t1 may cost alot of money but devide that cost between 10 users say in a apartment building and you can get a t1 for as low as 60 or so per person or less.
Then there is dial up wireless and satalite not to forget dsl.
Price on wi fi internet are dropping fast it will be available in my area for 25 per month for truely unlimited access vs you false unlimited access.

Also be glad you dont have to deal with me not oly would you not suspend my account for ever 5 minute or longer interuption in any portion of my service i would automaticaly deduct 5 dolors from the next bill.
Thinking kidding ask my own isp about me (o sorry you cant you dont know me and wont) i have had free months of access from deductions for service interuptions.
I a way i wish i did have comcast as my isp cause to me stickign it to isps is a big game one i enjoy to play..........

yeah mmorpg's have huge updates and mmorpg's are a huge thing now among gamers. When I was beta testing FF11 on PS2 I was grabbing updates like every otehr day that took 1hour+ to download. At full speed that is almost a gig I think.
