Comcast to offer usage monitor in January – report says

By on

Comcast-logo If a report from DSL Reports is true, Comcast is soon offering its internet subscribers a bandwidth usage metre as early as the first week of January of next year. The new usage metre will allow customers to track how much they have used on their new 250GB caps, meaning that they don’t have to install third-party software to monitor their downloads.

This would, like we do in Australia, adjust customer’s habits on downloading and uploading content on the web. Previously, it suggested that you should download and install special software to monitor your habits, or face the wrath of a verbal warning because you have gone over your 250GB cap and you weren’t (or were) doing anything illegal.
