Get banned for exceeding Comcast’s bandwidth limit

Jul 15 2011

I’d like to know who these people are who only use “four to six gigabytes a month”… thats hard for me to believe.

For the last eight years, Vrignaud had been a happy customer with Comcast. He says he never had a problem with the standard residential Internet service he was paying nearly $50 a month to receive.

But he recently took advantage of a promotion to upload his entire music collection into Amazon’s digital cloud service and another promotion that let him back up his system’s hard drive using a service called Carbonite he says got him in trouble with Comcast.

"I was doing what these services are all about, and I got cut off. I exceeded Comcast’s 250-gigabyte limit," said Vrignaud.
