Beware! Comcast just added Datacaps back to the Gigabit Ethernet plan without notification and a $25/month exploding offer

0 Comment

Geez, can you like a company less than Comcast, I’m not sure how. Basically, they told me that the 1Gbps plan and that this included the $30/month unlimited data cap plan so that was a pretty good deal. However, while this worked for a month and then they removed the cap and didn’t tell anyone,…

With a DVR, it is nearly perfect, but with “NBCOlympics.com”:http://nbcolympics.com, you can watch four different events live. I’m going to be up all night!
