Comcast is raising data caps to 1TB in all areas of the US that it's currently limiting internet usage. It's a huge increase, pushing the limit up from today's 300GB limit, which customers could reasonably meet by streaming a lot of Netflix. Comcast says that shouldn't be a problem with its new cap

So can I. Staying with the in-laws for a bit and hit the 300gb cap literally overnight. Called to add unlimited and they hassled me like crazy saying it wasn't necessary based on his internet history. Took 3 calls to get it added.

in some market area they even suspended the cap, that means no limit, no overage penalty.

Why is there even a cap in the first place? The crappy company made lots of money and they are telling customers they cannot afford to handle the load?
