The same way cell phones are handled:
What the fuck?In this trial, XFINITY Internet Economy Plus customers can choose to enroll in the Flexible-Data Option to receive a $5.00 credit on their monthly bill and reduce their data usage plan from 300 GB to 5 GB. If customers choose this option and use more than 5 GB of data in any given month, they will not receive the $5.00 credit and will be charged an additional $1.00 for each gigabyte of data used over the 5 GB included in the Flexible-Data Option.
dude on Reddit said:Ok, so let's think about this for a moment. If you want more bandwidth after your initial allotment, it's $10 per 50gb. But if you want to receive less bandwidth and pay less money, Comcast subtracts $5 for 295 gb.
Is this some sort of joke?
Their whole justification for this (At least what they tell the public), is that people who use a lot of bandwidth should pay more, and people who use less should pay less. So the best they can do for people who use only 5gb per month, is $5 less, and for people who use more, it's $10 per 50gb? My fucking god. Just when I thought Comcast couldn't be any more of a scumbag, they go and outdo themselves with flying colors.
