Reminder: Comcast’s 1TB Data Limits Now Apply in Several New Areas
In case you missed this news last month, Comcast will be unveiling its plans to cap data to 1 TB for a lot more people in November . If you are in one of the affected areas, it is probably a good idea to start tracking your usage.
As we mentioned earlier, Comcast has been experiencing data size constraints of various sizes since 2012, but it looks like the company has finally settled on 1TB to please a raucous, angry crowd . They have now deployed it in many more areas, including the following:
- Alabama (Dothan)
- Florida (North Florida, Southwest Florida and West Palm)
- Southeast Georgia
- Indiana (Indianapolis and Central Indiana; Fort Wayne and East Indiana)
- Michigan (Grand Rapids / Lansing, Detroit and Eastern Michigan)
- New Mexico
- Western ohio
- Texas (Houston)
It’s better than anyone who has been under data constraints before. If you are in one of the affected areas, it is probably a good idea to start tracking data usage. One of the biggest complaints about Comcast’s data limits is that their trackers are unreliable (I’ve had my own problems with completely incorrect data reports before).
