Comcast Shies Away from Usage Based Billing
"Right now we have no plan in place to activate usage-based pricing," Comcast bigwig Neil Smit told investors on Tuesday.
No need to pull the plug, Comcast says it isn't switching to a usage-based billing model.
That's great news for customers addicted to streaming media, such as Netflix and OnLive, not to mention all those ginormous game demo downloads and Steam titles. And while it's true Comcast subscribers are capped at 250GB of data per month, according to Comcast, the average subscriber doesn't come anywhere close to that number.
