Internet Use

September 27, 2008

I have just listened to the latest Cranky Geeks and they talked through the Comcast limits stuff, and how Comcast have not provided a way for the customer to measure their Internet usage and hence avoid going over their 250GB limit. The discussions turned to the idea that Comcast could not provide this service. Well Plusnet here in the UK have been providing this for some time alongside their packet shaping efforts and I have just recently became a heavy user of it.

I make use of both online backup and Microsoft Mesh synchronisation, and through the last month have cracked a personal record for download which caused Plusnet to heavily moderate my Internet speeds, so this is one for Dvorak and co… Comcast can do it if they wanted to.BWUsage
