Even Comcast Gives More Bandwidth Than BendBroadband
(If you haven't been following the BendBroadband bandwidth cap news, read up here.)
Comcast, the nationwide cable company everybody loves to hate, is mulling over putting caps on their monthly bandwidth -- at a level 25x higher than BendBroadband's base plan (and still 2.5x higher than their high-end plan).
My biggest gripe about this whole mess: Their usage graphs still don't work and probably their biggest PR blunder in all this (in my opinion): they still haven't released their new uncapped Business plans, which would be an option for some folks. Then if folks still wanted uncapped access, they could then point to the business plans.
My sources at BendBroadband say they're working on it, as they are with fine-tuning the details of the residential plans (they are listening, folks), so expect an annoucement from them at some point, but I couldn't tell you when.

The entire process is pissing me off. I'm waiting, I'm watching, and if it continues to piss me off I'm dropping them like a bad habit. I've had it up to my eyebrows with money grubbing companies. The whole bs line about not making the masses pay for the over usage of the small percentage is flat out illogical and deliberately designed to woo the 'masses' into thinking they are getting a deal by comparison to the 'over users'. I've had it BendBroadBand. Dishonesty is not a C.O. value-added policy for retaining loyal customers.
