Comcast changing its bandwidth cap structure

   "The first new approach will offer multi-tier usage allowances that
    incrementally increase usage allotments for each tier of high-speed
    data service from the current threshold. Thus, we'd start with a 300
    GB usage allotment for our Internet Essentials, Economy, and
    Performance Tiers, and then we would have increasing data allotments
    for each successive tier of high speed data service (e.g., Blast and
    Extreme). The very few customers who use more data at each tier can
    buy additional gigabytes in increments/blocks (e.g., $10 for 50 GB).
    The second new approach will increase our data usage thresholds for
    all tiers to 300 GB per month and also offer additional gigabytes in
    increments/blocks (e.g., $10 per 50 GB)."
