comcast can go die. a slow, lonley, painfull, suffering death. with a side of herpes.
but the rumor was "the world ends at 2012" not internet.
internet was like 2050 or 2020 or something else. maybe it was both (earth/iweb @ 2012)?

yeah but british companies have a habit of turning round and going "oh did we say no limit? we meant no limit til next year Very Happy" they usually put a renewal down anyway so they can screw with you like that.

hope bt doesnt impose limits tho, cos they tend to control what the other companies see as "fair"

BT doesn't limit your download, it just charges you if you go over their "LIMIT".

I know because I'm half way betweeen option 2 and option 3. Every month I incur a small charge for being a little over the limit, but it would cost me less to keep paying the charges than to upgrade to option 3.

And that article dosn't bother me. 250 GB download in one month? you would need to be downloading 24/7 on an Uber speed connection to reach that.

I don't think its 250GB per person,
Quote:
Starting Oct. 1, residential high-speed Internet customers will be limited to 250 gigabytes of traffic a month.

I think its ALL off comcast, all its users. In that region.

I could be mis-understanding though. I do suck at getting infos from reading Razz (that's why I like, but hate bears poems. They are well written, but 80% of em I barely understand.)

i think it means the area you live in cause if it was 250gb a person there would be no point putting on a limit
