[ NNSquad ] Comcast's ammended AUP:



Effective Oct 1st, Comcast will be introducing bandwidth caps with the
following properties:

Above 250 GB/month, they will begin notification.  First month, just
notification.  Second month, termination.  They don't seem to suggest
it is a hard cap, but rather a "notify then terminate" cap.

They claim this will not affect 99% of their users, and that 95% of
their users could many-fold increase their consumption without
encountering the cap.

This also SHOULD be high enough not to be considered too
anti-competitive:  The estimate I found on the Roku netflix box is it
is ~ 1 GB/hour.  So that would be >8 hours/day of streaming video of
reasonable quality.
