It's Official: Comcast Joins BendBroadband and Caps 'net Usage

During the BendBroadband cap mess, there were stories about Comcast mulling a 250GB cap (while BendBroadand was mulling a 50GB max cap, which they later raised to 100GB after public outcry). Well Comcast made it official last week by putting an official 250GB cap (on a related note, at least we're higher than Time Warner).

Needless to say, the public is flipping out, asking many of the same kinds of questions we asked locally, and trying to figure out ways to break the limit (as well as track it properly). But the sad reality is that this is going to become more and more common, and even Qwest has the exact same policy, even if they're not quite as obvious or open about it.

Has anybody gotten a large BendBroadband bill because of the caps they instituted locally?
